Watch out for the mosquitoes
Posted Aug 17, 2015
We had a 5-night stay at the Classics Hotel. Everything was OK at best.
We stayed here during the summer. When I first checked into my room, I was glad that there was air conditioning, but only to find out the remote didn't work and it was blasting cold air into my bed. The blankets were very thin and didn't do a good job trapping my body heat so I ended up getting a cold after the first night.
The mosquitoes were the biggest annoyance. The cleaning ladies didn't really understand English when I told them they didn't need to clean my room everyday, but they did it anyway, ignoring the do-not-disturb sign I intentionally left on the door handle. They would come in and clean my room while I was gone and left the window open, and the mosquitoes got in. I had mosquito bites on my face and arms.
There was very little body wash so we had to resort to using the little hand soaps the last couple of nights because we felt bad about asking for so much (we already asked the front desk to replenish the tea bags and get fresh towels, the lady didn't seem too happy accommodating our requests.)
A small annoyance was how thin the walls were. We heard every door opening/closing and voices in the hallway and the room next door. I'm usually a heavy sleeper, but the combination of cold air blasting in my face, mosquitoes, and noises from the neighbors made it less then.a pleasant stay.
