E for Effort, Great Location, Great Staff, The Hotel is showing its Age,

If it wan't for the staff, I would think this hotel deserves a markdown. The room is very nice and quite large. On check-in I had an air-con that sounded like a motorboat, so they upgraded me, thanks. However the things that tick off frequent travelers happened, a complex TV cable system, two remotes and a required tutorial, could not figure out how to get the hot water in the Shower, and the AC was barely cool at the lowest temperature. Breakfast was very weak, hostel style. Fitness center was a joke, looked abandoned. The location is top-notch and the staff are incredibly helpful, in the end the hotel is itself is a classic style, marvelous wooden floors, spacious, friendly, which I loved. However hotels need to be comfortable and that was really lacking with the basics. less

During the 3 months we were closed for Covid19 we renovated and deep cleaned the rooms, replaced old a/c units, updated our TV cable system, redecorated the hotel restaurant and revamped the breakfast menu.
