i don't write many reviews, but this one is a must - i'd hate for others to go through this much trouble & headache!
"This is not 'hotel' service it's 'apartment' service", told me the manager, Alfredo Guzman. "From 10-11ish am to 6pm" -- if you're lucky to catch him there, that is. That and IF he decides he's in a good mood, enough to do the FAVOR of providing you with basic customer service.
Some other phrases of his:
-- "listen, I'm busy right now" (yes, attitude & all) - when i asked to see another room, because the first studio that was assigned to me was uninhabitable!
-- "i'm doing you a favor" - after waiting for hours for him to get back on a request.
a few bullet points:
- horrible rooms (i checked 2 studios) - COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM THE PICTURES!
- not fully furnished
-- didn't have a single spoon (only noticed after i came back from the grocery store with some yogurt).
-- had one filthy mug + one equally gross glass. THAT IS IT!
- dirty sheets, dirty walls, floors missing tiles - think "as cheap as it gets"
- NO TOILET PAPER - unfortunately i only noticed that after the manager's office hrs, when i got back to the room, later on my first night, after the office + dinner, around 9pm -- and guess what? i called, he didn't answer. voicemail, text message (he uses a cell phone) - nothing. after the front desk tried him a couple of times, he finally answered and said: "you can use the bathroom on the 14th floor, by the gym"
Never again; wasn't cheap either, $200/night - more expensive than (real) hotels around.
DO NO RECOMMEND. certainly will not return.
