Value for money but suck customer service
Overall was average . Good food location.Only one bad comment is from front desk service .I was check in room 514.The air con was totally not working at all! When ask for change room, the staff who wear spec was told me that fullybook.When I ask him double check again he told me the same. I told him that how could I stay the hot room for 2 nights , he told me that he only can change for me only tomorrow . I really don’t believe wat his say so I have tried to use app to book the same hotel with the same day , the result show still have rooom ! I was very angry on it as the staff was not been honest with me! So I told the guy if full how come I still can book it if I want. He told me that ohhhh the room is other Customer already book but still not check it yet , I was told him can not make Sense at all . If full how come the app allow me to book . After that, he go n ask his lady colleague. Both of their acting was so low, in the end , he told me he will help me change it cos I have so much real detail to show him! The whole stay was good after change to level 4. I’m not expect the hotel staff provide me the super good service as I understand that wat u pay n wat u get . For wat I want to say is since you choose to do the service line, please put into the customer shoe , be honest ,be helpful and mind your body language when attend customer . I hope that management must look into on it on staff training especially on service n attitude part . Thank you .
