“So close to airport”

4 star

Pick up in an instant, which was great at 12.30 in the morning. Drop back also instant, with a pleasant driver. The room & bedding was clean & cool, but I think the air-cons could do with a good overhaul. I know this is petty but the toilet paper was thinner than tissues & a better quality would be appreciated, overall I wouldn't hesitate staying there again.
