Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I like it here because the staff were friendly and accomodating, the guests were free to cook their meals.. I dont like because there is no cabite where the guests can hang their clothings and there was no slippers to be used by the guests inside the room
