Our room was dilapidated to say the least. To start with the main door would not open fully as it jammed three-quarters open as did the bathroom door. The room itself was adequately spacious with opening French windows on to a shared balcony. The close HV power lines seemed almost in reach though.
The advertising said that air conditioning was installed, but no and neither was the free wifi. The latter only seemed available from the entrance foyer and the lower floor where the restaurant is.
Not only was a/c not available but also no complimentary bottled water. There was not a safe either. Another problem was that our room was located on the 4 th floor and this building did not have a lift.
Our bathroom had a bath with an overhead shower attachment but no shower curtain so there was spillage and the chance of slipping getting out of the bath. Oh! What water went into the bath escaped through the leaking plug hole. The bathroom relied on natural ventilation through a louvre which opened out to the corridor. Lastly this bathroom had a broken light fitting.
Going by the hotel's web site I was certainly expecting better but this wasn't to be. Until this hotel undergoes a through refit I would strongly advise against using it.
