2/10 Poor

The front desk employees and the manager are the worst i ever seen. The rooms are bad and no hot water in the room to shower. Food is bad. They advertise that they have a shuttle but they don't send any one to pick you up from the airport. I had to pay money and take a taxi to the hotel where i stayed only 1 day. Wat a disgusting place and managers. I don't know how this hotel got 4 star!

Great stay
Couple issues with the wifi and cable but for the price you expect some flaws. They made passwords required for wifi which made a huge difference in overall speed throughout the property. Still pleased with overall stay.

Good Enough
The hotel is clean, the staff are helpful, some even going above and beyond. The food is decent in price, taste, and wait time and the wifi is great when too many other people are not on it. The laundry service is good and you can efficiently change money. There are many staff who do not speak english fully, so sometimes things get lost in confusion. It was initially difficult to get in touch with the hotel to coordinate the airport shuttle, until I was at the airport and a local tried several numbers for me. There was an issue with their key card system so I did not have a personal key my entire stay and had to be let into my room. Since my second room was nice, and quieter than my first without a key, I was not interested in moving to a third room with a manual key. The location was close to what I needed to do, so overall I was pleased enough with my stay.
