Our room was located on the third floor. We could reach it by "using the stairs", said the lady at the front desk. Outdoor stairs. 37 degrees Celsius. We found a bug-infested room. Not surprising in itself because there are open, illuminated walkways that swarm with bugs at night. What was surprising was the spider nest we found next to the bed and the number of cockroaches in the room. Combined with a stained carpet, chipped furniture and a fridge that didn't close well because of the ice in it, it didn't look like the luxury hotel we had paid for and expected. I must honestly say that efforts clearly had been made: big flatscreen tv, bathroom with double sink (though leaking).. but it did not outweigh the general state it was all in. Compare that to the beautiful lounge and you may find the contrast striking.
