Average deal
Nice room, no need to go out as bar is located within the building at the top floor. But the sound system is terrible, too loud.

Service without a smile
the room, the location, cleanliness of room
The room was big and spacious and clean but we had difficulty in sleeping some nights due to the thumping from the nightclub.. Really it is only worthwhile staying at this hotel if you can find a quiet room. The main thing most people want is a good night's sleep and yet the priority of the hotel seems to be the nightclubs. Also, the staff, all of them were not polite, welcoming and do not smile.. I always had to try and engage them with a thank you and a smile or a good morning.. The staff have obviously not been trained in customer service.
