I get free upgrade to 2bedded room suite. Actually everything is good. Soft pillow and bed, got washing machine, refrigerator, sofa, tv, cutleries, kettle. BUT its too dusty! I can see the pile of dust everywhere. Dead cockroach too. I have to clean the rooms myself. Been requesting for room service but no action taken. And the toilet seat is broken 😅 I wish the rooms have been cleaner, it would be perfect!

The unit was old, bathrooms were not in the best conditions. Yes, we got a whole unit to ourselves : a double room, living room, kitchen and bathrooms. But they were not in their glossy conditions (and dusty in many places). Hence, with the same amount of money, I'd suggest to get elsewhere that offers just a room; a clean and nice one (if you dont need the living room and kitchen). The first unit that we were offered has a musty, old building kind of smell. We asked for a change but they said all units are the same. (Fortunately) the light in the bedroom was not working and they were not able to fix it, hence we were offered a change. The second unit was slightly better as it did not have the musty smell. But in terms of conditions and furniture-age, i think they are equally old.
