Thanks for your review. We are assuming you stayed in one of our self contained apartments which are only serviced every three days. There can be cooking smell from the previous guests. Sorry we try our best to get rid of any smells. We wish you would have told us while staying here and we might have been able to do something about it. Great to hear you enjoyed dinging in our restaurant. All the best and thanks for staying with us
