                      No parking provided for guests no internet access, if there was, nobody informed me of that better to improve the cable tv facility

                      Peaceful place, accessable to city center.

                      5.0

                      Nothing. I am very disappointed and very angry right no and want strict action taken against the front desk staff. First of all when I made the booking on your website I went there at front desk to check in they told me to wait and ignored me completely and started serving other customers. I was made to wait 15 mins at the reception and then I was given the room. When I entered the room it was a disability room as the bathroom was made accordingly. I did not say anything at that time as I was in hurry but I want action taken on this.

                      although mentioned at Booked.net, they do not offer free Wifi, breakfast with poor selection, cigarette smoke permanently enters through bathroom ventilation

                      Honestly, there is not anything that I can say that I like about this hotel, the only thing is convenience to move around.

                      I am on level 11 and there are the disco and bars at level 17 but the noise from the disco travelled down all the way to my room every night and the reception said that is best room to avoid any sound.

                      There was a cellar bar that was ok - although it appeared to be frequented by prostitutes

                      The staff were unable to assist with a simple query regarding the air-conditioning control - hence I had a very cold and noisy night

                      Reception staff were really very unhelpful and seemed preoccupied and inattentive, I approached them one night with a heavy cold and I could not sleep and asked if they had any aspirin or menthol and they pointed to the door and said the pharmacy is a 10 minute walk down the street

                      After making many mistakes, the staff kept a good spirit and tried to improve things.

                      - The staff was disorganized. When I checked in, they forgot to put me in the system. At 3:00 am, somebody opened the door, enterd my room and was surprised to find me there (sleeping, then awake). At 3:30 am, the reception called and asked: Who are you? That was a very bad night.

                      The location was very practical

                      The floor carpet was not clean, the room looked old, and there was orange seed on the floor and a big brown stain on the bed cover. The curtains didn’t close correctly and the TV channel selection was poor. Food is not ok and rooms are not sound proof, at least to the expectable limit. This hotel used to be better.

                      The room was spacious - I was upgraded - and served it's purpose.

                      The surprise of learning that I needed to pay for the internet connection in my room. The web-site stated that wi-fi was free. There was no mention of the fact that only a cable connection was available in the room and that this was chargeable.

                      the bed was good, and also the pillows,

                      the internet and wi fi set up, it was not easy, user friendly, and it was not explained to me how the system worked, i wasted a lot of time during my stay trying to get service to communicate to my business
