    The lift was broken on arrival. We had to walk through rubbish area to get to the room. There are seperate buildings for this hotel which was not at all mentioned on the website. Apparently I only booked the cheaper side of this hotel, according to the staff at front desk. Therefore I get no view whatsoever!
