Location is great. Sparse, but clean room. Air conditioning didn't work, had a fan in the room but it was quite hot still.

Before I even entered this accomodation I was disgusted by the attitude of staff and management. I almost rang for police assistance to assist me in getting past the very unfortunate security staff employed there in the evenings. I will NOT be paying for this accomodation as I did not stay there. I was not allowed through their chain of brutal security staff to access my room. Please arrange a refund on my behalf.
