Room service staff can open the safety deposit boxes and rob if they want! We noticed of $400 loss on each of our deposit box, when complained to manager, eventually no clear response, they even had no record of who had cleaned the room!

The window is useless, because when you open it there is another building in two meters in front of you. Good breakfast. The staff are helpful. The... More
