If you’re expecting friendly staff then forget this place. They generally look moody, no smiles and don’t acknowledge guests (except for the night shift gate man - he’s got a heart of gold, very enthusiastic and makes an effort to put a smile on your face each time he encounters you). I had to greet the staff - how ridiculous is that. The lady at the restaurant making your eggs frowns ALWAYS. Doesn’t acknowledge when a customer makes their order. I felt as though the hotel staff thought they were doing me a favour in providing the service I paid for. In short the property is ok, nothing special but the staff makes it worse. Not returning ever.

Turning from bad to worse
Poor service, not much channels in TV, A/C heating not working. poor service attitude. They never pick up the phone in room service and housekeeping. Food options are very very limited (none for vegetarians)
