This is a mid priced hotel, with problems. Some of these are due to where the hotel is built, some are due to it being mid priced and can not be run very well. The stuff is VERY nice, but the following problems were still observed:
1. Hotel fans out over a hill. It does have a elevator. But there are 50+ steps to and from the elevator to the room. The elevator is a vertical shaft down the middle of the hill. One needs to get to it, and more steps from it to the room.
2. Bathroom has exposed pipes on the wall, some peeling paint, some leaking faucets. Shower pressure was ridiculously low, well below average. (Remember, cheap hotel in developing country . . . low water pressure).
3. One is supposed to get 2 bottles of water a day. Well, they ran out of water when they made my room, so they didn't leave any. Had to call desk in the evening, and wait for the water to be brought to the room (bottled water is a feature one pays for, not a discretionary courtesy).
4. Facial tissues box had 2 tissues left. Maid did not realize that, and did not refill box. Came in the evening, used the 2 tissues, ran out of tissues. Had to call desk, wait for them to bring a new box, then went out to dinner.
There must be a better deal around than this hotel.
