We booked the hotel to enjoy a beautiful rooftop pool. We went up at 4 pm and there was a barbecue party ongoing with over 30 kids screaming, splashing, throwing food at each other and for 5 hours we had to bear these kids jumping on us and playing. We rang the reception to complain twice but nothing was done. We and other 4-5 hotel guests were shocked and relegated in a corner of the pool for hours. We gave up and leave the pool at 9pm. Probably the most horrible experience had in a hotel in my life.

Good Afternoon Mr Salvatore, Thank you for your recent review and taking the time to share with us your experience from your recent stay with us here at Art Series – The Chen. Safety and comfort of our guests is paramount and we have strict limits on number of people allowed in the pool which were not exceeded during this time. As we discussed on your departure though I understand the level of noise and activity in the pool area was not what you were expecting. While guests of all ages are welcome in the pool area, disruptive behaviour is never acceptable and this has been discussed with our team to ensure we can deliver the best experience possible for all guests. Once again I thank you for taking the time to leave us such valuable feedback and we hopefully look forward to welcoming you back to the Chen to deliver the enjoyable experience we are known for. Kind Regards Jainil Singh Front Office Manager
