Definitely not 4 star
Location, staff courtesy, billiards
Room had shabby furniture (the cupboard had small wooden pieces to keep the door from opening), staff in the dining room and bar were really slow and not very responsive, housekeeping staff shout early mornings in the corridors, a group of tourists kept us up late into the night shouting at each other in the corridors and at 6pm in the morning their tour guide went around banging on doors and screaming for persons to wake up! Further, the hotel prohibits smoking but these same tourists were smoking in their rooms and having a card party with their room opened thus circulating their smoking to the entire floor. No action taken by the management to stop it.

Best location but bad food with worst staff
Location, clean room and checkin process
It is one of wonderful location and very clean room and bathroom but quality of foods are so bad and so expensive compare to many other hotels in category Management should take an immediate action to train their staff and most importantly way how to treat the guest
