This hotel is just 10-15 minutes from the airport but below-standard managed. The towels and bedsheets are so smelly even after we requested a change, that means overall hygiene management is poor. They are also not ready to follow covid-19 hygiene protocol, among others, breakfast is still on open buffet style. I don't think I need to elaborate more.

The staff here tried to be friendly but were not attentive enough. We made some requests but not followed through. For example, the dimmer curtains were not able to be pulled tightly closed and daylight came through which interrupted sleep. The curtain railings were jammed and told the front desk about it, but no one came to address the problem. The linen sheets smelled funky. I had to give it a few sprays of cologne to hide the smell. The bathroom shampoo dispenser was nearly empty and noone came to top up. The toilet bowl was icky. Had stains in it, it didnt appeared to be cleaned properly. Quarantine meals were a big let down. The portions were very small. I would say kid-sized meals which hardly was enough for an adult. Very likely you will need to supplement by delivery orders. Internet was another letdown. The Internet in the room was unstable and lagged a lot. So, video calls over WhatsApp or such were of poor quality. The hotel really needs to sort this out. After all this, It would seem giving it a 3 star out of 5 appears generous. I only gave it 3 stars because i had to endure only 3 nights stay. If it was longer...
