I had expected a higher end hotel, not luxury, but comfortable, maybe that's where I went wrong. The staff were friendly and helpful, and things were clean and in order, no complaints there. I had reserved a "Double room for one person", and the room had a double bed, but if they market it as a double, I assume it's suitable for two people, but this barely fit one. The bed could only be accessed from one side, and that was a squeeze (the arrangement was: wall, ~50 cm of space, bed, wall). There was no space for luggage, and the bathroom was tiny (you could sit on the toilet with knees and head against the opposite wall). Maybe the Double for one room is smaller, but the discount seemed only to account for the loss of one breakfast, so that was not my assumption. Aside from the size, two big complaints: air conditioning was weak, managing only to cool the room to about 23C/73F in September, and most bizarrely, the room doors could not be closed from the outside without (a) using the keycard to unlock the door and then turning the outside knob and closing it softly, or (b) slamming the door as though storming out on someone. As very few people thought to do (a), this meant you heard slamming doors from around the floor all evening and from the early morning. How did that seem like a good idea to management?
