          Patrik Martinsson Via -> Tripadvisor Web Portal Thank you for your comments pertaining to your recent stay with us. The experience and comments you described has caused us deep concern. We would like to offer our sincere apologies for any frustrations that may have caused. The comments and suggestions have been carefully noted by our team and these have certainly raised concern that needs to be addressed and will inspire us to strive harder in servicing our hotel guests. However, allow us to share with you on our findings. The standard room assigned for your stay from September 14 to 17, 2015 was Room 014 (Wing B) and yes, all our standard rooms are located at the basement. The dry spell and the weather lately have contributed to the indoor environment where we felt the air-conditioning could not even conquer the heat and are seemingly stuffy! To add the situation worsen, unfortunately, upon the day of your arrival, 01 of the compressor of air-conditioning unit at the walkway broke down on Sunday, September 13, 2015 evening. As this job requirement is catered by a appointed contractor who is waiting for a new parts to arrive, we totally agree that the walkway is stuffy especially when the corridor doors are closed at all times. With our Duty Manager’s assistance, Addyzan immediately attended to your comment and you were moved to Room 001 (Wing A) upon your agreeable to the room inspection prior to moving. Addyzan apologized for not having the opportunity to inform you pertaining to the compressor’s shortfall. However, the compressor was changed on Monday evening itself and the air-conditioning is now up and operating smoothly. Patrik, kindly rest assured that the comments received have been of value to us in order to provide the best possible standards to our guests at all times. We sincerely regret that you did not convey your disappointments immediately to our Reception Desk should the change of room only is not ethical as our aim and intent is to ensure our team is totally customer-focused and all guest concerns and disappointments are handled quickly and efficiently. We hope the above is in order and if we can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us know. Thank you. THE MANAGEMENT
