2/10 Poor

First and foremost, the lady that checked me in has a nasty attitude and was very rude. Secondly, the room was filthy and smelly. Please see the photos I've attached with this review. I had to go to the front desk and pleaded for a room change or return my money so that I can move out right away. They refused to return my money and instead offered me an alternative room. Again my room was supposed to have various conveniences, such as a cattle to make my tea; unfortunately, there was a cattle and a cup of tea on the table but it did not work. Despite my repeated requests, the receptionist kept conspicuously silent. What's more, their mattress was pretty hard and wire-filled. I couldn't even sleep, so I rang the front desk and informed them. Guess what? I had received no response. The front desk staff is the most ignorant I’ve ever encountered, and they made my stay a living hell. I remember, one time when I asked the receptionist to lend me a pen to fill out some forms, and she gave me a very bad glimpse and advised me to go out and get my own! Isn't this utterly ridiculous? However, I was fortunate enough to have a man seated next to her offer me his pen. To cut a long history short, I would only recommend this hotel as a last resort. I'm not sure how they even managed to get 7.4 rates.

6/10 Good

I like the hotel and the staff. The breakfast is very good and the range of meals for the evening was great. I stayed in the studio and enjoyed my stay. The only thing I didn't like about the room is it was to dim. I prefer a lot of light in my room. The internet was good but would fall out from time to time. If there was a problem they fixed it very fast.
