I had 8 guests attending a wedding and we put them up in Silka for a few nights. And it was a huge mistake. There are a few room types available and the cheapest ones do not have windows! Not only do the carpet smells as a result of the mold and lack of ventilation, these rooms can pose a danger in the event of a fire! Imagine trying to escape in the event of a fire... The doors are also not fire resistant!
Not only are the rooms smelly, maintenance was bad. Towels were not provided and has to be asked for and there's no daily tidying of rooms... Until we made a formal complaint to the manager! Needless to say, for the amount we paid, we expected much, much more.
If I have guests coming over again, I will be hesistent putting them up at Silka again. The Thy Executive hotel is nearer and is much cheaper and value for money.
