Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Amazing location and there is 1 very helpful lady at reception - Tais. Other than her - was difficult to get anyone’s attention. Room was always dusty/Sandy after “cleaning” My room safe did not work, they did not fix it first day, and next day someone from staff stole cash from my bag. Be careful with lift doors - they can hit you or kids - no sensors AC must be from 1947 - really noisy - you are better of to sleep with open windows and stree noise After that I got everyone’s attention I mean it is a cheap hotel in amazing location. Stuff at the restaurant are really hard working good men - I feel sorry for them Breakfast is ok, but a bit messy
