The facility was too old and hardware need to improve. My room didn’t have hot water when taking the shower, need to repair , wait for the maintenance for about 10 minutes and fix the issue with 10 minutes but the bath room already wet and slippery but the guy didn’t call the service maid to clean up. And other room which my friends stay in is the air conditioning was rushing out with water !This is a very poor situation I never met before , hope to have improved in future!
