I stayed in this hotel in March, 2013. The only good thing about this hotel is the location (but there are many other hotels in the same location). Everything else was bad, bad, bad, despite the fact that I had asked for the best room, and was offered a 4 bedded airconditioned room, the tariff of which was just next to the highest one in this hotel. Characteristics of this seemingly "NO MAINTENANCE" hotel :
1) Dirty room
2) Stained linen
3) Dirty black pillow protruding out of the case (I cannot believe even the cheapest hotel would offer such a pillow to a guest)
4) Filthy, stinking bathroom
5) Airconditioner fitted just next to the bed at bed height (not where it should have been)
6) They advertise of having automatic lift. But the 4 storied building that houses the airconditioned rooms doesn't have any lift. My sister has problem with her knees, and she was compelled to climb up and down the stairs in pain against her physician's advice.
Let me be clear that although I didn't have a high expectation about this hotel, it undoubtedly failed to deliver even the bare minimum amenites and comfort that a guest would look for, and what this hotel is under obligation to provide.
