i checked in at a time when the hotel was at 100% capacity and there were long queues everywhere. Queues for taxis, for tables during bfast and full elevators. Not quite what I was hoping for.
Rooms are old and showing their age. Once, my room's circuit breaker tripped while I was ironing. Had to call the reception and get a technician up. Frustrating.
Everything creaks.. from the door to the bed. Walls are thin so you hear loud conversations from the corridor and even hear next door turning on the shower.
There was a notice the hotel is under renovation though..about time.
But service was fast, efficient and good despite the large crowds. They did their best.
I think the Sheraton next door could be a better choice - it looks newer and perhaps could be a better option. I will try Sheraton next time to see.
