Disappointed, for multiple reason
Posted 4-Apr-2016 on Hotels
I am not a picky person at all, so I had high hope before settling in. First, let's start with the good. Good location, friendly staff, clean room, comfortable bed, good breakfast. This seems good enough for many people, but let me point out several places that fall short significantly.
First, the AC/heater is extremely loud when it kicks in. I am not a particularly light sleeper, but I was waken up several times during the night. I almost wanted to pick up the phone and complain, but knew it won't savage my one night stay.
Second, what other important factors for a family trip? How about a pool? I didn't realize this hotel actually get the pool and gym access from the neighboring indoor park, which is like 5 minutes walk away, go through crowds of people, and have to ring the buzz to get in. Same thing for the exercise equipment, and worse, they all close at 9pm. I usually go to gym after getting kids to bed (typically 24 hour gym). 9pm closing just makes it impossible.
Third, the room is on the small side. The king bed and the sofabed pretty much take all the room. The bathroom is extremely small. This is probably the smallest room size compared with similar hotel arrangement. It probably fits in the one person on business trip instead of a 4 member family with small kids.
The above three factors, especially the first two, pretty much killed my stay in an otherwise, decent place.
