This place is old and very badly maintained. Whilst the rooms are big and spacious, this is not of much use if the room is badly maintained and uncomfortable to stay in. The room floor is dusty and the parquet flooring is in bad condition and in need of change. There was a musty smell in the room and bad odour coming from the bed cover. Mattress was worn and sagged in the middle. I did not have a good night sleep and the mattress caused me back pain. Air-conditioning stopped early in the morning and nothing was done to rectify it.
The WIFI reception was extremely poor despite it being advertised as being provided in the room. I only managed to get some WIFI reception near the room door - which is ridiculous since you would have to crouch and sit on the floor to use the internet. This is totally unacceptable.
The other major grouse is the extremely poor TV reception. All the channels were fuzzy and I did not manage to watch any channels (even the local channels!). How can they offer a TV with such bad reception? Not only are there no cable or satellite channels but the local channels should at least be clear and watchable.
The room itself was very dim and dark. The wooden flooring and furniture contributed to the 'darkness' of the room. No reading lamps were provided at the work desk. At night, the room was horrible dark. I did not like my stay at all in the room.
The hotel is badly managed as I could see dirty room service plates which were left outside rooms still there after the second day. Everything seemed old and tired and badly in need of change.
Even when a complaint was made to the front desk/reception, no offer was made at all to rectify the problems or to resolve the issues. No suggestions for a room change was made. The staff did not even seem surprised by the complaints and no effort was made to try to rectify the problems.
I would seriously caution anyone from staying here until the place is spruced up, management improved and problems addressed and resolved.
