Staff are friendly, but they said my payment didn't go through although I just paid through this app online. I got all the receipts of payment with me as proof. In the end they let me to check in thank God. What's upset me, its already past midnight (just arrived from kk driving) during my check in they just told me that the elevator is not functioning and our room is at level 4, also the there's problem with the water. Since its already late, my whole family decided just to stay here for the night because of tiredness from a long drive.
