|Misleading location, the entrance is actually on Niven Road!|
To start with, the taxi from the airport did not find my ZEN Rooms Mackenzie Hotel (located in Rucksack Inn @ Mackenzie). It went right past it and due to the the one way street, I had to pull my heavy luggage down the street and into Niven Road. It would have helped it the hotel had either a clearer signage or even mentioned their hidden entrance location in the confirmation mails.

|Double room with window!|
While I had a window in the double room for my Formula 1 week, I came back a few weeks later for my trip home and just booked two nights in a single room. I had no idea that the room came without a window and it was as tiny as those rooms in Chinatown. Upon entering the room I knew that there was no way of me sleeping in this stuffy little room. The bathroom was filthy, the bed looked like it had been used already and the TV set was leaning on the desk and against the wall, unplugged and blocking the light switches. Just impossible to stay here, so I just sat down and booked myself a much better room for a much higher price, down the street!
Had the second room been comparable to the first room I had, I would have rated Zen Rooms Mackenzie a bit higher in my personal rating system, but the horrible second experience, combined with the fact that not one single taxi driver found the hotel due to the bad signage, misleading location and the unacceptable room cleaning service, I will surely never use this Hotel again and mis-trust those ratings in the two Hotel booking sites I used.
