1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Hotel hygiene is poor, carpets were not vacuumed before and after check in, hair and body hair were clearly visible on carpet and bathroom floor, I will never stay in this hotel again and will tell all my friends that this hotel is messy. Worse There is no on-duty manager and hotel manager service, and the phone in the room can't reach the hotel front desk. All in all, this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in in my life!
