Booked the Cititel many months ago for a 14 days visit. We turned up and we wanted a water view. We were shown to a smoking room with a view which, at the time we accepted, as there was no obvious smoke smell however the longer we stayed in the room the stronger the smoke smell got. To be fair that was our fault however our real problem was the size of the room. It was far too small and it appears that all rooms in the hotel are the same size. The reception area and the breakfast area had a strange dirty smell and we checked out the following day to stay at the Bayview Georgetown, just around the corner. To be fair the staff were extremely friendly and very concerned with our comfort. They even assisted us to arrange alternative accommodation.
I think if we had been placed in a non-smoking room and had plans to stay for only a couple of days the Cititel would have been fine.
