The company I work for decided to check me into the apartments in this hotel to save money. Obviously the recession is hitting hard.
There is a big orange rusty stain on the floor in the shower. Water comes out of every join in the shower pipes. The rainwater shower and pipes are wobbling and I wonder how long before it all comes crashing down.
The floor is dirty, I have to question when was the last time it was cleaned.
Breakfast if you don't want to eat Chinese is egg, toast croissant. Your lucky if there's any jam. You can have coffee, but you have to question it when they tell you there,s no tea. Learn the word for "why" in Chinese and they miraculously go off to get it for you.
Staff don't speak English very we'll so after a tiring day at work it's frustrating if you need to ask for anything.
The scariest part was next morning when I couldn't get out of the room. The locks are automatic and you have to work out how to open them. No one told me this when I checked in. If there had been a fire we would have fried that night. I am not sure of the ability of this hotel to deal with such an incident if anything did happen. Anyone staying here make sure you are familiar with opening the door lock as soon as you arrive just in case. You never know in these countries.
Location is good
