Stayed at this hotel for a couple of days. We were given reservations as a package for an event, so we cannot choose another place to stay. From the airport, we have to have the exact address of the hotel (street name, nearest intersection, etc), since taxi drivers are not so familiar with the hotel. Though one driver told us it was a hotel with another name from way back (changed its name to Dohera, maybe after a takeover or something).
Front desk experience wasn't something to be glad about. It wasn't so welcoming during check-in, so much issue to settle, it's not even checkout time. Good thing the bellboy was nice, despite our loads of luggage. The room was nice at first glance, with towel art on top of each bed. We got what looked like bulldog-shaped towel art.
Can't help but sigh after seeing the bathroom. Toiletries were below par, so make sure you bring your own toiletries. I'm not sure if this is a hotel issue, but the water from the shower feels a bit hard or rough. And there were no bidets for the toilet.
Breakfast varies per day; one day was so-so, while the next day was amazing. Hope it could be amazing every morning.
If check-in was a struggle, check-out was twice as bad. Front desk people should learn some people skills since they're dealing with guests, and we're not even on the irate level. A message to front desk: please be nice to the guests.
