After seeing four stars attached to the hotel name I booked a room, pathetic smell , poor hygiene, stained bedsheets, I was disgusted and requested a refund, I was assigned a superior room which was no better. Extremely UN-recommended.

The Hotel is a Shame in the Name of a Hotel. The Rooms & Upholstery are Shabby and dilapidated. I had to literally beg them for the Aircon Remote control. Even the Bsaic toiletries were not there in the Wash room. The linen in the room seemed and looked slept in.
