Check in was meant to be 2pm, we were not allowed to enter the room until 4pm.
The smell of the establishment on the street was putrid.
The carpets in the hallway stunk, and were extremely dirty.
The room itself did not have any sugar, coffee or tea, no spoons for stirring.
The main Air conditioner and television did not work at all.
The bath/shower facilities were disgusting, with the paint and flooring peeling to the point where I did not feel safe using them for fear of "catching" something.
When we came back from dinner, my partner gagged at the smell from the outside and when we went upstairs the cooking oil wafting up from the Chinese restaurant next door permeated throughout the entire floor/hallway. We choked and gagged on the oil and nearly had an asthma attack. I could not believe how much oil was in the air.
Overall I thought the $129 that we paid for this room was totally overpriced and I would definitely NOT recommend this accommodation to anyone.
