          Ms. Debbie C I am simply surprised that you could go on tripadvisor and wrote that you got no housekeeping. You and your team refused from letting the housekeepers in to do housekeeping in so much that you will put the garbage at the door along with dirty linen and when asked about housekeeping you will say just empty the garbage and give us clean linens. One of the housekeeper have to beg you to allow her even to tidy your bathroom and by the time she got in to start you said you were leaving so she will have to go. How can you get what you did not want. As a missionary please say it as it is. YOU AND YOUR TEAM REFUSED TO HAVE ANYONE IN YOUR APARTMENT TO DO HOUSEKEEPING and thats the truth.

          Andrea, Never you try to tarnish the reputation of anyone, place etc. You were quite pleased with the place and service until you were shown the cancellation policy that we are not responsible for early checkouts. That is when you started telling lies about blood on towels. We have a very compentent staff and no-one would put a towel with the slightest spot muchless a towel with blood marks in your room. I am so sorry I don't not have a picture of the towels to post so that everyone who read your review could see and come to their own conclusions. I beseech you please be truthful in your reviews.
