I loved the cleanliness and honesty of the hotel staff.”

Manager at the reception is highly educated and very respectful person....he let me check in b4 time and provided me with the best. I forgot my iPhone at the sofa where I was sitted at the lobby area. When I checked in...suddenly I realized that my iPhone is missing and I was very scared and ran down to the reception...it was a big relief when they said they have the phone with them. I thanks them for their honesty. God bless everyone. Thanks once again.
