this hotel really is the pits - on my second (and hopefully last) stay i checked in and was given a room on the first floor. When i got to the landing i could barely get along the corridor to my room as the builders were in and the hotel thought it was appropriate to empty room(s) and store the furniture in the corridor rendering the fire exit route an obstacle course. It also afforded an unwanted inspection of the state of the furniture and created a dismal impression for anyone checking in. Marvellous!
I went to the front desk to ask why the corridor was effectively blocked (you couldn't get along with any luggage) the duty manager came out and said she didn't know about the situation. Her command of English was poor, but she seemed to understand that fire exits should be kept clear.
To be fair when i returned a few hours later the corridor had been cleared, but this gives you a sense of how the hotel treats guests.
