Imagine yourself exhausted. With smeared make-up on. After a 24 hour flight. The baby has been crying -and is still crying non-stop - because of a tooth growth.
Grandpa is inventing new terminologies and a whole set of hilarious body language as we speak. He is desperately trying to ask a 60 -year-old shopkeeper the direction to a non-touristic restaurant as Grandma is badly in need of some sugar charge, as the food offered by the Airline Company was just a handful of rice, 2 carrots, 2 slices of Asian Flavoured beef and one bread as hard as a rock.
Dad has forgotten his headphones (where?) and thus is opening all the luggage at once while arranging a city tour via phone with your group of friends who are lodging on the opposite side of the city - somewhere near a mask shop, they say.
You might need us.

You should always expect - NAY, demand- the space to be clean & tidy, right? Especially nowadays since the #coronavirus19 pandemic, it's become a safety issue.
You shouldn't find hidden dirty spots, dust under the bed, greasy countertops, used sponges, unwrapped toilet paper, or hairs in the shower.
But what about our biggest enemy? Right. The invisible, nasty, dirty little germs & bacteria.
To prevent the spread of germs, our staff has always taken special attention to disinfecting not only the big surfaces but also small items such as bedside lamps, doorknobs, cupboards, radiators, light switches, remote controllers and so on.
Moreover, we schedule a monthly throughout cleaning and maintenance work following a precise check-list so that nothing is left to chance!

PERSONAL CHECK-IN PERSON
Our guests will have a person always available from check-in until check-out.

You could just bring your toothbrush and toothpaste from home, and that is it! And if you forgot it, call our Customer Service, and it will be added to your Extra Grocery Packet.
For the beds, we have chosen high-quality Doleran mattresses. Each mattress has a mattress cover for extra hygiene.

They should have a common space, where the kids can watch the last Netflix cartoon while a parent works on a last-minute assignment (we know that there is always a last-minute assignment).
They should be able to share a space to prep their meal and eat together. They should also be given all the utensils, basic cooking supplies, etc to prep their meal.
They should be able to save money for fun activities and beautiful museums instead!
