I received a fantastic response from Reception staff, especially Rashid who basically assisted in a way that's unheard of all over the world where i have stayed.
I lost my wallet and phone outside the hotel during my stay and the support i received from both Rashid and Salik was brilliant and outstanding. 5 stars rating for their assistance during a very stressful time when i had no one to ask for help during my stay. Thank you Rashid and thank you everyone else. You guys saved me
