Property condition


  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Where to start, first sink didn't have any water called to get it fixed. Second shower only have very hot or very cold not able to get the perfect temperature, end up taking a cold shower. TV channels were not working had to ask twice to fix it. I am glad I didn't go to breakfast on the first day, The second day the selection they had was really bad, eggs was the most interesting in the menu and guess what they didn't have any asked to make more, manager offered me fried rice. This was at 9am. I really hope they improve.
