I stayed in the grand hotel for 2 nights, there are two type of rooms, the premier rooms which are modern and new, and the standard budget rooms, which I stayed in. It was spacious enough but everything was rough, there is not a table for us to put down our handbags, watches and wallets, there is not even a towel rank to hang up the towels, no racks in the bathroom for you to put the shampoo and soup, I have to put them on the floor, and there is no hair dryer. I went down to ask the reception for a hair dryer and they said they did not provide any even if I can pay!! It was so ridiculous!!! I have to wait for 2 hours before I sleep until my hair dried. Luckily the hotel is just 2 minutes walk from the tourism center, it was very convenient and quiet. I probably will not choose this hotel next time, I would rather stay in YHA which cost similar but offers much more facilities.
