After many business trpis to PJ I decided to try a new hotel, this one. Unfortunately the start was quite disastrous:
- I had specifically mentioned in my reservation that I wanted "high floor" & "quiet room", well I got a room on the 7th floor (out of 35), facing the main road and with the loud elevator next to my room. I went down to complain to the (very unskilled and quite unefficient) person that had put me there, and told me that "my fee" didn't allow a higher floor (sounds like nonsense to me, but anyway), after complaining again, eventually got a room on the 5th floor (if I keep complaining I may have got the basement) but at least far from the elevator. Fortunately the isolation on the windows was quite decent, so even facing the street the level of noise was ok.
- The same guy gave me the wrong code to access the internet, and told me wrongly that the gym opened at 7:00 when it was opened at 6:00
Anyway, the secret for the rest of the stay was ... to avoid that guy.
And now the good news, the room was very nice. The breakfast absolutely fantastic, and the dinner on the same restaurant was amazing. Only problem is that it was COLD (and I come from Northern Europe), it would have been great putting the airco a few degrees higher.
And the gym, that I used everyday, really good. The treadmills are top quality and in order to let time pass you could either look at the traffic jams on the street ahead of you or to the built-in TV on the treadmills.
Really a stay to repeat ... specially now that I know whom NOT to talk at the reception desk ;-)
