Ug I do not have fond memories of this!
The staff were generally very friendly but the room was sooo stuffy I kept waking up feeling short of breath. There seems to be no fresh air coming in through the aircon - I might be wrong but it just seemed like a cooling/heating unit. You can't open a window of course and the room was so small it felt claustrophobic. By the look of the fire escape chart on the door we got the smallest room on the entire floor - which would have been more appropriate for a single person - not two! To make matters worse it had a (locked) connecting door to another room whose occupant seemed to check in about 11pm and kept having loud conversations on his mobile about every 2 hours until about 4am - which was very loud through the paper thin wall and not appreciated when we had to get up at 4.30am for a flight!
Not sure if it was the same offender, but the stuffy room was made heaps worse by the wafting smell of cigarette smoke several times in the night! (of course this is banned by the hotel)
The noise and smoke issue may have been something reception could have helped with but as there is NO PHONE in the room we would have to have got dressed and gone all the way down to the desk to ask for assistance......
The hotel did not appear to be at all full, and it would have been appreciated had they not put someone in the connecting room, or better still, NOT put us in a connecting room!
The toilet seat did not appear to have been cleaned.... yuk!
Also the toilet and shower are in the same area, no huge deal, but it felt like a campervan toilet/shower!
There wasn't even a hand towel provided for drying your hands... you had to use your shower towel.
NO tea, coffee or kettle etc.
REALLY BASIC hotel ...... avoid if possible!
On a positive note, there was a fridge in the common area for you to put things in if you wished, but as there are no food preparation facilities it's not really that helpful.
