I usually more tolerable than most people are but this time around, I must agree with the 2 prior comments made on this by masgendut and hm_y. I have never seen such a bad condition of a hotel. From the moment we walked in, the a/c was not turned on in the lobby when it was super hot outside. Then we were given our rooms (we booked 2 rooms for 2 nights). We were so shocked how bad condition were the rooms. From the smell, DIRTY bathroom (tubs are all moldy, paints chipped, and again smelly), to stained carpets (and wet !) and bathsheets (old blood stained all over the sheets).
It took us about 30-40 minutes to get new rooms. We went from level 2, 3 and 4 and ended up having to just close our eyes and accepted the most decent rooms since we had pre-paid for the hotel. We thought about moving to another hotel but then the lost would be ours, too.
The breakfast was just as bad. The toaster isn't working... to my surprise, the waitress was trying to poke the toaster with a metal knife until I stopped her because I didn't want her to get electrocuted !!! ... What a dumb person! ...
Anyway, like the other 2 comments, stay away from this hotel. Spend more $ for a nicer hotel like the Aston (which we stayed there on our return from Bunaken island)... This is a dump !! the nerve they have to promote their property as a 3 stars..
On a positive note, the staff, other than the dumb waitress, are very accommodating and friendly.
