    I cannot see how to reply to the hotel management so I hope this works as obviously my previous attempt did not. I stayed the night of 31 July. The porter who took bags to room, in response when I said smoky, simply opened the window and switched on aircon and said it is OK. I was in a hurry, but I should have complained immediately, After I had used bathroom and come back I felt I was too late then to complain to front desk.
