My husband and I stayed on the night of the 3rd and 5th Sept. Thankyou for enabling us to survive the earthquake although the door to the bathroom was very heavy so if we had made it to the door jamb it would have been hard to keep the door open in an earthquake. As we were stuck on Sunday night with the curfew we had to watch a poor choice of movies and the quality of the viewing screen itself was very bad

The bathroom sink was blocked

The bathroom sink was blocked which was a nuisance when brushing teeth. The room has blackout linings on the curtains for a nice dark room to sleep in. I requested a quiet room away from the lifts and was accommodated.
