Good 3 star Hotel but Poorly Maintained
Celyn Hotel is located near a mall which is an ideal location. The hotel furnishing is as good as any 3star hotel however the maintenance of the hotel was disappointing. The room and bathroom was not thoroughly clean and had leftovers from the previous guest. I had to personally scrub the bathroom. Bedsheets also had greyish hue to it including the towels rather than the fresh white colour that normal hotels would have. It is ashamed that such a hotel is poorly maintained and it seems as though the management hasn't taken any noticed of it.

Not meet expectation at all. Smell of cockroaches in the room/toilet. Found cockroaches in the toilet.

An okay stay
Had to change room because the air conditioning was not working properly. After change of room the air conditioning was average as well. Not cold enough. On top of that the mall was doing some sort of renovation at night which was very noisy, but hotel staff was kind enough to inform mall management to cease work on hotel side.
