Pay a bit extra and stay at the Hyatt or Hilton

The hotel starts off very impressive with a massive opulent lobby but it goes down hill from there. The room was ok and nice powerful shower but cleaning was clearly minimal with collections of dust in places and I am not sure when the carpet was last hoovered as loads of bits. Maintenance work being done in the corridor meant banging at 8.45am each morning. The most disappointing bit was the swimming pool and area. Pool towels were often ripped and marked. To access the pool you had to go down a grungy fire escape and then restaurant outside buffet area. The pool was dirty, sunbeds dirty and some the plastic split with no mattress padding. The whole pool area needs some serious attention and cleaning plus you get the occasional whiff of sewerage from the gully out on the road. The Hyatt and Hilton are about £20 more a night, I would recommend splashing the cash and get something way better.

Älteres Hotel in der Nähe der Waterfront. Die Korridore und Zimmer sind mit schmutzigen, stinkenden Teppichen belegt. Auch eine Nachreinigung brachte nichts; der Schmutz lag immer noch überall herum. Das Hotel wird von vielen asiatische Reisegruppen besucht die sich sehr laut verhielten. Das Morgenbuffett wie auch das Personal war ok. Hotel kann nicht empfohlen werden.
