    Lights/Air Con didn't always work, hot water was spotty, seemed very dirty and outdated, loud, windows didn't open. It was comparable to a youth hostel with no food service, no front desk, no amenities. Very, very unsatisfactory for business travel.More

    Hi, for Standard Room 1 King Bed, how much do you charge per night for 1 extra bed ? Thanks.
    18 April 2017|
    Answer Show all 2 answers
    Response from Sarah C | Property representative |
    Grace, it would be $20 per night to have an extra bed in your room. If we have a room with two beds, we can move you to that room type but if we do not, we have roll aways which are also $20 per night.
