Fantastic Location

Location, location, location
Hotel location is excellent, rooms are small allowing only walking space in between. No fridge and no water cooler provided by the hotel or an ice machine. Food for breakfast provided by the hotel is standard but there are many food premises around the hotel if one decides to opt out. The hotel water heater in our room is not working.The batteries for the TV remote is dead. Poor maintenance regime by the hotel, relies on customers feedback before fixing the issues. May as well pay look for other similar hotels around the area. They are plenty.

The rooms need improvements

The location, the concept
Bathroom's drainage keeps clogged. Disgusting. The air conditioner keeps on and off by itself. The tv remote control's batteries already dated out. The parking lot quite dark, and you had to walk to the receptionist, which is at least for me is quite uncomfortable. Last but not least, the room's acoustic system sucks. I can hear every footsteps and screams from another guests as i sleep.
