Infuriating experience from discriminatory staff!
We’ve stayed in the Sonata hotel 3 or 4 times but sadly it will be our last. When we got room 425 the room has a faint smell of urine. The tub has a folding shower door that hinges on oneside and after my wife took a shower there’s a large amount of water leaked through the restroom and onto the carpet. The carpet has lots of water stains which suggest it leaks often which washed the urine onto the carpet causing the smell. I tried to shower directly opposite from the door but to no avail. The water ran from the top of the tub, through the crack and onto the floor. We were promised a room changed. There were 2 housekeeping a third person from the cafeteria (I assume because her English is better) came to inspect. At first glance she accused us not knowing how to take a shower, hopped in the tub and made gestures we made the leak by spraying directly inches apart on the doors and hinge. She said and I quote "you people do not know how to take shower", when I asked what kind of people she replied "you China people, Chinese people". Well, I am seasoned traveler but I do not take these reference and attitude lightly. When I asked her again to clarify she shied away and said "I mean Asians", which I think amplified the problem even more! This is ironic since she is an Asian immigrant herself! When we explained that we had long been visitors of the Sonata and did not have other issues, she told us never to come back! When we told the story to the front desk clerk she did not apologized for the staffs behavior, but instead rolled her eyes and shrugged her shoulders as if she was hesitant to say something, then went on saying "well some people, I am not saying you guys, but when I was in China, I saw people taking shower..." and then she stood up and pretended to wave the shower head like she has no idea where her head was. We were absolutely stunned by the demonstration and actually agreed with that rude staff maybe it's time to look for another hotel.

Hostel quality, Hotel prices
the location, the staff were pretty good too
It's old, but without any character, it's tired, worn, feels like a 70s hostel that has hundreds of guests per day. The bathroom sink leaked all over the floor, the mattress was poor, the blankets old and thin. The room is rather ugly, as are the hallways etc. Overall, it's a pretty depressing place. But, due to the excellent location, just near main shopping streets, the old town and not far from the Dom, they charge quite high prices. Would never go back there, but do wish them luck. If they redid the hotel with quality furnishings, there is no reason why this couldn't be an excellent, and value for money, 3 star hotel.
