Room was so small and dirty. Bathroom was filthy. Staff was very good and helpful. Food was tasty but reception area has bad smell. Restaurant also gives bad smell. All due to poor vantilation and poor design. It was a nightnare and will never stay there ever even if free.

The staff there are also very friendly and are willing to attend to your requests without any hesitation.The standard room would be suffice for a couple but for those who wish to stay there with their kids/entire family,...
