Negative Reviews

Problems with payment may be encountered

Upon checking out, some of the guests were surprised that their fees were higher than expected. It may also be helpful for you to ask upon check-in what products and services are free of charge and those that are not.

Minor bathroom issues

Some guests complained of the lack of bath mats to stand on when getting out of the shower, while some find the lighting at the bathroom too dim. In addition, sockets for hairdryer are sometimes not functional.

Dusty in-room curtains

The amount of dust on the blinds made some guests extremely disappointed, especially those having allergies. Make sure your room is thoroughly cleaned once you enter. If it is not at par to your standards, you can call for a housekeeper.
