Better deal and comfy stay”

I'm a regular at this hotel. Recently, they gave me a room far end, huge with my own balcony but the generator set was just below my room. A light sleeper like me can't sleep with that buzzing noise and tremors. So i called up the front desk to switch to a new room. The polite staff came personally and escort me to my new room at level 4 over looking the function. Room was beautifully modernly set. Love tye colour and deco. Modern bathroom not bath tub but with soaces standing shower. We are provided with iron, iron board, hair dyer, mini fridge, kettle and mineral water too. Toiletries are available too. The aircond remote and light switches is just beside side table where the hotel telephone is. So covenient. Im so happy with my new room. Alot of mirrors in the bathroom and good lighting for make up too. Good services eith friendly staff. Will come back here again for my next trip. Happy and satisfied customer
