Ramshackle “Business Suites” on offer
Posted Aug 23, 2011
Don't be duped into reserving a "business suite" in this flop-house. First, the bathroom measured 67”x55”. The shower in the corner measures 21”x36” without any separation just a shower curtain with water pouring into a centrally located drain in the middle of the bathroom itself - not the shower! The shower hose was connected to the sink tap. A strange unpleasant, slightly miasmic odor emanates from the sink drain.
Second, the (weak) air conditioner was not located in the bedroom but in the sitting room. Therefore I opted to sleep on the fold-out bed -- each time that I set the remote to 18ºC degrees, it reverted to 27 ºC. Curtains in the sitting room are sheer; thus awoke at 630am at sunrise. (In the hot bedroom, drapes at least afford 3/4 coverage from early morning rays.
Third, no screens so although at night the weather is cool there is no point opening up the door to the balcony or any windows given mosquitoes.
Fourth, location is unideal unless you are into the Arcadia night club scene.
Fifth, there is no elevator.
Sixth, breakfast, offered in five variants, was below standard. The first variant consists of eggs and ham. When my girlfriend asked that the “sunny side up” eggs given her be "over easy," they simply put the eggs in a microwave to cook them a second time! [However, I had no issue cottage-cheese filled pancakes (served cold)]. No choice of juice - we got apple juice (like it or not).
