Excellent in October, terrible second stay
I stayed here in October and it was excellent. So I decided to come back for a week. However, I had many issues during my recent stay. Gilberto and a couple other guys were kind and helpful, I always want to mention any good points. The manager and another guy were unaccommodating. I called Hotels.com many times. Each time, I was placed on hold for a very long time and given no resolution. I made a booking on Jan 16 and paid in full for a room with a double bed and river view. I had four different rooms during my stay. The first not a river view and no double bed. The second with a river view, but a broken toilet. The third night, no river view and hardly any WiFi. They argued that they do not honor specific room reservations from Hotels.com. They kept telling me they don’t have this room available. Then the fourth morning, I overheard a couple checking in and being given the choice of two rooms with river views. So I asked why I am not given a room with the view as I reserved and paid for. The manager told me they are two people. However, I also paid for two people. He finally did give me a river view room, but even then the aircon could not be adjusted as it was totally broken. I had to have the maintenance guy come and rig it in just fan mode because I wasn’t hot, but I needed to block out noise because they were doing construction on two floors, plus there was construction across the river. It was a very stressful week to say the least.
