OK ... There are pluses: the beds are REALLY comfortable; the a.c. works; the rooms are clean; no street noise.
After that, it's a rapid downhill spiral. Enough so, not sure where to begin ....
- you have to like dogs because the entire reception sitting area is for the resident dogs (4 chihuahuas, 2 Welsh corgis, and 1 Pomeranian). Dogs are ok, I like dogs and these are friendly, but the very present smell and the late night barking came as an unpleasant surprise.
- you shouldn't be distressed by the very sad and lonely macaque in the small cage sitting outside the hotel's entry;
. . . If you're still at the reception intending to check - because you lacked the good sense to turn and find a better place to sleep . . . don't bank that your reservation will be what you thought you'd made.
Detail: we were seeking a room for 3 people. The website posted a price for a room for three.
- we reserved a room based on the information on their web-site, followed by a phone conversation to confirm prices & room availability. So, I asked that person to hold a room, and he did.
We arrived and were greeted by the animal life, then the reception person appeared. After about 30-45 minutes of negotiating, re-negotiating, arguing the price -?- with 4 different people we stayed one night. We stayed one night so that we could drop our bags, know we had a place to sleep, while we hit the street to look for a different place to stay.
Note to detail: the third bed was carried in (in response to heavy negotiations), and it was a rubber-coated gym mat on a metal cot. The mat proved better on the floor than on the cot.
The levels of distress were multi-faceted - confined primate, dog house, fluctuating prices.
I think the confined macaque was the first and last of a series of frustrating events.
