The worst “nice” hotel I have ever stayed in
From the service to the cleanliness, this is the worst “nice” hotel I have ever stayed in. The air conditioning did not properly work, it took 15+ minutes to get warm water, and the room was not adequately cleaned. I was very disappointed and would not recommend staying here.
