Don't get me wrong, the overall hotel itself was great, service was great, bed was comfortable, but it was missing the basics. I paid like 17BD (about $48) for a small bag of laundry to be done. A small bag of shorts and t shirts... When they returned, they were all pressed and on hangers. That's nice and all, but...

The lobby was nice and very elegant, and the staff was nice and helpful. My main issue was with the room. Walls were thin with minimal sound proofing, I can hear phones ringing in other rooms, doors opening and shutting like it's my room door. Furniture looks exhausted and used with scratches and discoloration in many areas. Electrical sockets next...
