Nice staff, faint smoke air in room spoiling stay
Posted Aug 21, 2016
Relative good location, calm street and parking for $12/24 hours nearby. Issues: a) shower has a dark curtain so by closing the curtain you are in the dark inside the shower box, no lighting (fix: replace for a transparent plastic shower curtain); b) battery of the smoke detector needs changing, detector started beeping warning sounds by 4:00 am (fix: staff should Change batteries within regular schedule BEFORE they expire); c) water taps in bathroom were reversed in the sense that they open turning it "clockwise", must have been fitted by people with no knowledge of standards in this Country (fix: employ certified plumbers for plumbing jobs in the property); d) air conditioning thermostat did nothing to control cold air temperature blowing from the ceiling directly over the bed (fix: upgrade the HVAC system in the hotel to allow for min/max temperature control in the rooms, plus allow re-directing the air flow direction by guests or place air flow blowing not directly over beds); e) Mattress was noisy (fix: change the old coil mattress). All would be forgiven if we didn't encounter the greatest problem of all: the signature smell of smoke that, although faint (hardly perceptible when we first entered the room), after many hours the odour builds up and gets hard into one's nose (fix: change completely the carpet, curtains, mattress and the blanket covers for superficial cleaning will not remove what was certainly a place of heavy smoking).
