Stay here if you smoke and don't need sleep

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 17, 2008

We stayed here for one night on a layover. The rest of our group stayed next door at the Ambacang. After a dismal check in process, we were given rooms on the floor facing the back of the hotel. The reeked of stale smoke and the airconditioning was barely working. We went out for dinner and on our return discovered that a disco on the 2nd floor was in full swing. There was doof-doof echoing through the room. There was no way I was falling asleep. After 2 phone calls and 3 trips to the front desk we were finally moved at midnight to the room directly opposite us- where you couldn't here the disco at all! They made a big deal about how we were being given a significant upgrade but that meant nothing to me as we were getting up at 5am for an early morning flight.
The disco is on every night but Sundays and goes to 2 or 3am. They are more than aware of the problem! So if you must stay here, make sure your room faces the front, as far as possible from the 2nd floor. Otherwise stay next door. It is cheaper and better.
