The shared bathroom was smelly and the room was hot. The staff members were friendly but it took time to call them as they are short in staff atm. Slow communication on website messages.

1/5 Terrible

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Cleanliness
They did not replace bed linen. I found there are new blood stains in the sheets in the middle of the night. The blood mark looks very new and it did not look washed. This means they did not change bed linen in my room after another guest used the room
