The room was better then we expected. We only found this website after we had booked and the feed back we read before we got to this hotel was very poor.
We managed to get a room at the side of the hotel so there was no road noise. But the wind howls through the windows making a noise like dragging a lump of rock across the road. Leaking gutters and pipes means all night you will have pouring water falling onto a platic roof. Pure Chinese water torture.
I came down at 8.30am to change the room as we had unfortunatly booked for two nights. But "absolutley not" was the receptionists reply. This was an improvement on the receptionist the previous day who booked us in. She was too busy chatting to a friend on MSN to do anything more then give us a dirty look when we dared to stand at the desk. When we asked to book a shuttle to the airport (as their brochure tells us to do only through reception) She told us to come back and do it the next day. No surprises to see that the lazy girl wasn't working the next day! She simply didnt want to be bothered to do it there and then!
Still look on the bright side. The receoptionist was sooooooooooooooo lazy and preoccupied with her cyber fun that she didnt charge us. STEER CLEAR!
