As with many, many of the hotels or apartments that we stay in, we find that cleaning is just not good enoguh. I dont want to walk into the bathroom and find 4 or 5 long black hairs in the bath as I did in the ensuite of the 2 bedroom apartment that we stayed in. I know that a thousand other people have stayed there before me but I just dont want to be reminded of that all the time. I just dont understand why the cleaner would leave hair in the bath unless it hadnt been cleaned at all. If it was cleaned, then those particular hairs would surely have been washed away given that they were on the bottom of the bath not even around the sides. People keep telling me to loosen up and that its not the end of the world but it just annoys me seeing as you pay quite a lot for your holiday accommodation.
Although we did not speak to the person on reception very much and there were two or so different people there over the time that we stayed, I got the distinct impression that they werent interested at all in the guests. It was "head down in a book" sort of thing and "dont even look up at anyone in the foyer if I dont have to and that way hopefully no one will ask me anything or bother me".
But location was very good as so close to the mall and the apartment was roomy. Not particularly cheap as we tend to find these days. Decor was a bit 1990's and lounge balcony looked straight into an office block at close range so you could see them up close drinking their coffee and doing their filing and photocopying etc. It reminded me of work which I have just retired from so I didnt like that aspect of the place although you could request an apartment that didnt look directly at the office block and of course a high floor is better for minimising the street noise.
