The reason we stay there is because the hotel was quite near the airport and we had an early flight to catch. We didn't have a pleasant stay because:
1) The rooms were very old and it they were situated very far from the main reception building. We arrived with tons of luggages, but the receptionist didn't offer to send us our luggage to our room even though there seem to be a buggy service. We had to carry our luggage and head to the next building which was down the road.
2) The receptionist took our passports and forgot to return them to us. We only realised that late after we have checked-in and had to walk back to the reception building to ask for it. The lady knew that we had an early flight to catch the next morning and we might have left without the passports, but she didn't bother to deliver them to our room or even call us to inform us to collect them from the reception desk.
3) Sound proofing was really bad. There was a dinner function going on the same night we checked-in, and we can hear people heading back to their rooms from the venue. After our neighbour got back, we were able hear her very clearly, laughing and talking loudly with the TV turned on. It was very annoying especially when we were trying to sleep as we had an early flight to catch.
Don't think we'll be staying at that hotel again.
