2/5 Poor

Liked: Property conditions & facilities
When checking in I was asked to pay for my booking again as there was some issue with the payment provided by Expedia. The staff were aware of this before my arrival yet made me spend 2 hrs trying to get the issue sorted. Staff should have contacted Expedia themselves as soon as they became aware. In room info invites you to visit their BWS and enjoy a drink in your room, however no glassware is provided to do so.

The room wasn't very clean and we realized they had only given us 3 towels not 5 once we were ready for a shower.

The room was clean and check in was fine. We had 3 issues, the outside light controlled by the adjoining room lit up our room even past the curtains so it was a bit to bright to sleep. The aircon was way too small for the room( im saying maybe 27 degrees inside when its 32 outside and thats after removing the blocked aircon filter). The bathroom is tiny to the point where the towel rail is directly besides the toilet bowl. Had a decent size TV and usb ports in some of the power points which was nice. Comfortable Mattress and linen.
