my girlfriend and I were anticipating for this day to come. 1 day of relaxing together at the comfort of a recommended new boutique hotel.
Booked a deluxe room cos i wanted to relax with my girlfriend in the bathtub. checked in ontime and got the room. went into the room and was disappointed that i saw no bathtub. called the reception and enquired. her response was....that there are no more deluxe rooms, and upgraded us to executive room, which was more expensive. i replied that, i didn't care about the cost, i want to bathtub! which is why i booked 1 week in advance. they then replied me saying that they received unexpected extensions for the deluxe rooms. i replied saying that that isn't my problem, considering that they KNOW i am coming and they still accepted the extension. then i asked for the mgr on the line. she came and apologise. ended the conversation with "i'm sorry that we do not have any deluxe room now. is there anything i can help u with?"
i was totally disappointed and fuming that she actually tried to shut me with that last sentence. my girlfriend told me to cool down and forget about it. cos it's getting nowhere if i continued arguing. so i stopped.
the size of the executive room was amazingly small. the flooring was cheap. the sink was not in the washroom. the washroom door had no lock.
we were awaken by the cleaner at 7am, when he just barged into our room while we were sleeping.
as mentioned, it was 8minutes walk to 24-hours shopping mall, mustafa. but it took us almost 20mins walking there. and no we did not walk the long route, and not at a slow pace.
the only good points were, complimentary breakfast and complimentary minibar. which is think is essential considering all the bad points said above.
