I needed a place to stay for an overnight layover, and the location is good. I was there for 15 hours. Problems began when I could not use my card to pay. I am in the country for a short period of time and have no desire to take out cash to pay for the room. I paid 75% of the price in dollars and offered the balance in currencies from neighbouring countries. This was refused and I was offered to go to another hotel where I could pay by card - I'm in the room as are my bags at this point. All ATMs nearby and not so nearby wanted to charge me 20% of the cost of the room as a fee so I was forced to take out hundreds of dollars to justify this fee - all to pay this ridiculous property $7!
And it's 30 degrees in reception with no sir con while I have to deal with this ridiculousness..
Was this stay relaxing? No
Could this have been avoided? Yes
Would I return? No
