Decided to try out Zleep,. It was about 20% cheaper than the other large chain of hotels I normally tend to use.
I hate to say it was a "meh" experience;
- Language: I called to tell the staff I was running a few minutes late. Very friendly lady on the phone, but only speaking English. Some older people might have problems with it.
The "real" receptionist was a very karismatic Swedish girl - she managed to "show and tell" where to go.
The Hotel also offer check in via a machine, which is a huge plus. However, I did not see any info about this on hotels.com, but Zleep does mention it on theirs.
You get a 24 hour room card. Blackout windows a plus.
Booked double bed, received narrow single bed. Mattress appeared worn; I could clearly feel and hear the springs when sitting down in the bed. I did sleep fine, though. Blackout
I experienced this downgrading with no choice nor refund at other discount hotels,and I dont agree with it. Reception was closed after inspection.
Fridge was noisy so had to turn it off for sleep.
Water cooker: Worked, bit chalky! Had to fill it with plastic cups from toilet faucet. Free paper cup dirty.
Room was unclean; a few stains on floor/surfaces, lint and some residue like hair from earlier visitors here and there.
Wiped finger along 5 cm of foot panel - dirty!
Shower: Leaky rusty pipes, wet floor. Some spots of black/brown mold in shower area. Noisy toilet fan.
Cleaning staff very loud English in the morning.
I'll pay the 20% extra next time.
