Cramped, out-dated and noisy
Posted Sep 2, 2015
The general entrance to the hotel seemed reasonable for a 3 star hotel, but the kitchen/service area door was always open, meaning you could see into the kitchen area, which didn't look very professional.
Our room was tiny, with barely enough clearance for a slim person to squeeze past the end of the double bed to get to the other side where the window was. This was evidently a problem for many previous guests, as there were grubby marks across the wall where people had repeatedly tried to manoeuvre around the room. The décor was dated and shabby.
The ensuite wasn't really fit for purpose; it was crammed into the room, with a folding door that frequently got caught on clothing when walking past. The shower unit didn't have any kind of shelving for putting shampoo etc, which meant you needed to bend down to the floor for things - this was tough in such a small space, but dangerous too, as I banged my forehead on the taps in the process.
The biggest issue was the noise from the air conditioning unit which was under the window, right next to the bed; it was so loud it was like having a jet engine running next to you while you tried to sleep (it was possible to turn off, but in doing so you could then hear thumping and banging in the room above, plus it got too warm). After perhaps two hours sleep, I decided to cut the stay from 4 nights to 1 and promptly checked out.
