Poor 2,0
The house keeping will destroy this hotel
Very bad housekeeping. From a 4 star hotel you expect that at minimum when you request for your room to be cleaned that its actually properly cleaned to the the same condition your entered on the 1st day. Below our my notes during my stay: 1. Bed sheets are not always changed 2. Carpets are not always cleaned 3. Rubbish bins are not always cleaned 4. Toiletries are not always supplied 5. Surfaces are not cleaned 6. Tea/coffee are not always supplied
