My parents-in-law were put up in this hotel due to a cancelled flight and they had to endure the worst hotel stay ever in their travels. The hotel was in an appalling state, with very poor internet connection and extremely poor service. They had requested for a change of room which took more than 3 hours to be resolved. Over... More

Bed lines are bad and are round shaped which is very uncomfortable for long people and couple. One of the worst breakfast I ever had and even they have no good staff. I suggest not to... More

A very bad experience. Just one night but enough to perceive how this hotel is far from acceptable standard. Thousand of mosquitos in the lobby, dirty room, no shower, just one towel. Never again in that hotel.

I must say that I had a very bad experience during my stay at this hotel and I do not have a single good thing to speak about. From day one, I had issues with the television reception. Every evening I would have some one from the technical team come and look at the issue but with no fixed solution.... More

This hotel is described as "world-class deluxe hotel amenities, impeccable service, and attention to the minutest details of your every need guarantee a totally relaxing and stress-free sojourn" by their website.
