We happened across this hotel becasue the bus company that brought us there dropped us off at the hotel .
First impressions were that the hotel looked nice, reasonably modern , and quite spacious . Myself & my girlfriend viewed a room , which looked fine , and agreed a price of $12 .
We had just endured a 12 hour bus journey so we took the room , and went to bed shortly after . The next day we spoke to the girl in reception , and she was advising on various travel advice & the area ect .. this girl is a compulsive lier , no exaggeration ... check out the following...
1) she told my girlfriend that we should not go out at night , becasue the area was too dangerous ( to encourage us to spend money in the hotel ) this was not true, as it was very safe there ..
2) we priced the laundry there , and it was twice the price as outside the hotel , she told me that it was not safe to leave the laundry anywhere else as it would be stolen ....not true!
3) I was booking on line an international flight , and she told me that there were extra airport charges that would make my flight more expensive than the one she had on offer , i ended up saving $120 booking on line
4) she sold me a domestic flight , that worked out much more expensive..
Our second night , myself and my partner went to bed at about 12 , we were awoken by a noise , and when we turned on the light we spotted a mouse , then another , then another , at least 5 in total , my girlfriend was hysterical to say the least as a mouse ran over her head , not kidding!!
I went down to reception and told the porter that we wanted to move room. I was told that the hotel was full so we had to stay in the room . With that , i told him to get our passports ready that we were moving to a different hotel . There was a knock on the door 5 mins later , and we were given a room that was occupied by staff . The linen was dirty , but we had to stay there the night . The next day we were checking out . I was adament that i would not pay for our second night . When we went to pay the bill, instead of being charged $24 , she tried to charge me $30 , insisting that this was a discount price for our troubles , just to add insult to injury .
I could excuse the mice for the intrusion, but the girl behind the counter was an absolute parasite !
