Overall stay is okay. I was just a bit disappointed during early check-in. I called the hotel the day before my arrival to inform them that I will be early for check-in. I understand that I can only check-in when there is available room upon my arrival. They noted my request. However, on the day itself, I still was not allowed to check-in early. There were available rooms, however, the status is not yet cleaned. I was hoping they were able to clean it as I advised them ahead of time of my intention to have an early check-in. I am pregnant and will be attending a city tour. And it was very hassle for me to go back to check-in my room. Other than this incident, everything is okay.
