“Ok hotel. Staff tried hard, but could do with some training”
Reviewed 5 October 2012


Room was fine. Basic but fine. We paid 2000 for one night in the old style rooms.

Took ages to get a straight price for the room out of the staff which was frustrating after a long trip. I think we asked the same question 5-6 times to the same person.

Each time we asked the staff for something it was like nobody had ever asked that question, and the staff didn't know what to do. The room was missing towels, top sheet for bed and toilet paper. Each time we asked for something it took about 10-15 minutes to get resolved and lots of blank expressions. But to their credit, always they found what we needed, so just need to be patient. Maybe it's their first hospitality job?

Anyway, its good value for the price
