Dear guest, Thank you for staying with us and sharing your feedback. While it's great to hear that you found the room spacious, I am sorry to see that we couldn’t meet your expectations in regards to the quality of the bedrooms. Further refurbishment plan is underway to modernise the rooms and its fixtures in the near future which we believe that it will enhance the overall quality of the product. We hope you give us another opportunity to provide you with a product that exceeds your expectations. Regards Oytun Cevik Hotel Manager

Dear guest, Thank you for your feedback. The $200 deposit is in fact an authorisation of your credit card. It is not a charge and gets released by your bank within 5 to 7 working days. I am only assuming that the $2.35 would have been the actual charge that you had to pay upon your departure. As you have chosen to feedback anonymously, I am unable to look into to your booking details to provide you further information but if you would like to contact me directly at the hotel, I am more than happy to investigate your comments thoroughly. We hope to welcome you back again in the near future. Regards Oytun Cevik Hotel Manager
