ANBARASU, 5-night trip with friends
Verified guest review

8/10 Very good

Overall pretty good
The hotel is in decent condition, though some areas are closed (The pool and rooftop lounge). This means your pretty much stuck to the room. Rooms are clean with good bedding. Toilet accessories are very good, though Towels need changing. Jonathan and Titli at the reception were very helpful and courteous. Asked for breakfast to be served in the room, which they obliged. Good dinner and breakfast menu, with a variety of Continental food.

2/10 Poor

Worst Hotel for Business Stay
Booked for business and wasn't allowed to meet anyone on the lobby or restaurant. The service team is very egotistic rather than professional. Restaurant seating didn't reveal reserve sign boards, but we're told they were reserved when we sat. Service crew doesn't bother about customer and rather gave embarrassing treatment. Wouldn't recommend this hotel and risk yourself if you want to stay.
