I have been very satisfied with my stay here, primarily because of the staff. I originally booked two nights, thinking I would be arriving on August 30. Six days before my flight I suddenly realized I would be arriving on the 29th, so I hurriedly booked another night, but in what was then available, a windowless room. When I showed up, there was some confusion but I explained the situation. Rather than stay one night in one room and then move to the other room, the manager made the decision to upgrade me at no charge so that I didn't have to switch rooms. Needless to say, I was very pleased. Yesterday I asked the young woman at the front desk where I could buy a contact lens case and hair mousse. She referred me to the convenience store in the hotel, where I was indeed able to purchase the contact lens case. I said goodbye to her when I left, and then a minute later she ran after to give me a couple of suggestions about where I might be able to purchase the hair styling mousse. I was so impressed by her desire to be helpful! As for my room, it was comfortable and had what I needed: a small fridge, hair dryer, teapot, Wifi and air conditioning. The only negatives were that I could sometimes hear one neighbor's TV at night and that it took me a while to figure out how not to spray water all over the bathroom (only have of the tub is sealed by glass). That said, I would certainly consider staying here again. Aside from the staff, the location is great!
