Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Owner yelled at us
The owner yelled at us just because there was some water outside of the shower area within the bathroom.We offered the owner that we shall clean that area in the bathroom but the owner still kept yelling at us. After the incident, we were very scared. The owners were extremely rude. It was a very disturbing and uncomfortable stay. The table and chairs outside our room were completely rusted. The wardrobes in our room were filled with computer monitors. The coffee maker wasn't clean. The breakfast was pretty moderate.
