    • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    The correspondence was awful

    I spent 4 nights at here with a terrible shower in my room. The water turned from very hot to cold, and then turn from cold to very hot. It costs time to take a shower and waste the water a lot! So I requested to change my room, and the front staff accepted and said they need to send a staff to check my room first. I agreed and wait for about 1 hour but no one’s coming. I repeated my request 4 times and received the same correspondence every time. Finally I couldn’t have my room be changed.
