The receptionist is so impolite, and she even don't give explanation to me when check-in, for my reservation, there is some requirements for bookings, I booked a room for high-floor, double bed, when I check-in, she just give me the lower floor and 2 single bed, she just give explanation after I ask her, this is not right, for the reservation information, she have to explain clearly before do the check-in, and some more the room actually has hair dryer, but it's not functioning. This is my third time check-in this hotels, before 2 experiences is quite good, especially the 2nd time, I'm also reserved for a room with high-floor and double bed, with windows, the guys have explained all of and do the check-in process, and all the requirements of me, the guy has fulfilled, but this time, it's worst, the receptionist girl, every explanation is due to pandemic to this covid-19, what's the explanation, the 2nd time, and 3rd time I check-in the hotel, just the difference is 10 days. Worst, worst, worst

It's damn bad. Everything is old and in bad condition. Toilet stinks. Bathtub is rusty. The water heater is not working properly. Aircon not cold. I was in room 1233. Swimming pool is dirty. Breakfast selection is limited and horrible. Seriously the worst hotel i've been in. Do not come to this place. Citrus hotel which is just across and cheaper is much much much better.
