Most disappointing thing is to know that this hotel provides room service only if the stay is more then 7 days, this was advised at the time of check in when you dont have any option to go elsewhere. No ventilation in shower, no soap holder in shower, no fan or aircon in lift. Very bed odour from carpet in common area (specially on 5th floor).
