When we first arrived, we were placed on the 5th floor. The room had chairs with dry-rotted leather, and it smelled a bit musky, and some of the furniture seemed dated. The view wasn't all that great, and the wifi was not working. We asked to be placed in another room, and we were moved to the 10th floor. From there, things were a bit better. A bit.
Hospitable, respectable, and attentive to our needs. No complaints about them.
Smelled a bit musky. We had to air it out for a bit. The beds were not made up as neat and as inviting as the photo listed shows, but they were firm and comfortable non-the-less. I wished we had slightly bigger pillows though.
Free, but SLOW. The fastest WiFi is available in the lobby area... And that still pretty slow.
The In-Room Phones
Sometimes they work. Most of the times you pick up the receiver to a dead line. Don't depend on it.
It's supposed to be open from 6am to 10pm, but if you're lucky, the entrance to it will be open from 11am to 7pm. If it is closed however, simply ask the reception area to open it for you - although I don't think that we should have the need to do that!
To get there, you'd need to walk all the way downstairs, through the lobby, across the park-park area, and up an old squeaky elevator to the 5th floor. The pool water was cold and looked relatively clear, but had small floating debris in it. Again, uninviting.
Very small range of things to choose from - Toasted/Sliced Bread, Two types of Cereal, Cheese, Ham, Butter, Eggs made to order (scrambled, boiled, or omelette). The drinks include Coffee/Tea, and Orange/Pineapple Juice.
Relatively comfortable. The only disturbance you may get is the honking trucks from the main road in front of the hotel during rush hour. You barely hear car horns once the door to the veranda is closed.
