An good stay with expected slight negs.
Stay was ok. Location of aircon wasn’t good though cause despite attempts to redirect airflow away from headboard area of bed, airflow goes to your face when sleeping. You could feel movements n hear noise across adjacent rooms and above rooms. So I’m sure it’s the same on their end as well.
