Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The room had a mildew smell and cobwebs, and the lamps didn’t work. The room service was slow and inedible (old soggy salads). The room upgrade wasn’t as described (not larger, no sofa bed) and when they promised free box breakfast as per upgrade, not all was given. If fact, they left them accessible for anyone to take that morning despite our planning with them for our early flight. Also, no bellman sent to my elderly parents despite repeated requests. NOT WORTH ANY MONEY at all. DO NOT STAY.
