I booked this hotel through late room dot com and was looking forward to a relaxing night's stay. However it was not to be. The room and bathroom were clean, but the toiletries were limited to a thin slice of soap and barely a squeeze of shampoo. The hotel claims the rooms are soundproofed. This is a complete fabrication because the blaring music from the shops across the road can be heard clearly, as can the revellers passing the hotel until dawn. The corridor from our 2nd floor room stank of stagnant water. Had I not been so tired, I would've demanded a better, quieter room at the back of the hotel. Also note that the front façade is being cleaned / renovated so the banging and drilling adds to the noise. Definitely not a 4 star hotel. On a positive note, the air conditioning worked and was very quiet.
