          STAFF NOT FOLLOWING INSTRUCTION”

          Our stay was almost great but seems like the staff in the hotel did not really pay attention to our instruction, it was a very important instruction because we dont want to miss our flight that day. Before we went to our room to rest we have clearly instructed the Front Desk that we need a taxi at 7AM bcause they have a Van but no driver and i don't know what happen because the morning staff did not get that message, was it because of lack of communication or whatsoever???? And this front desk just called the Taxi about 7:30 AM and we were a bit irrirated already because he lacks cooperation and iniative to follow-up, only does it when his asked. But overall the hotel was really a nice location and easy to locate. Thank You.

          The hotel is still under construction but they managed to hide the unfinished part to make it able to accept customers. So, you can expect that all facilities there are still new and up to modern look or standard.

          Enjoyed My Stay”

          It was just within the city center. Reasonable price. I like the bathroom. It would’ve been good with a window.
