wireless week or no wireless at all, heating bad
Points - All that I did not like @ the hotel:- 1) a/c was not working 2) lights in the room @ the entrance were not working 3) Bathtub had a big leakage which caused the water to spread in the bathroom 4) Housekeeping was pathetic - linen & bedsheet were often kept on the bed & no vacumm was done in the room inspite of repeated requests 5)Breakfast was closed @9:40 although the time was until 10am. Breakfast had no options. Milk was stale & smelly. Cakes were not fresh and very hard. 6) Reception staff were very arrogrant & not helpful. They had very little knowledge about sight seeing. 7) Plants (big size) were kept in the room which caused small insects and flies. 8) Pool was dirty and was rarely cleaned.lots more to write but space const
The good thing about the hotel, is the friendly staff at the reception (one of them) and the location of it ! .. You can goto any place from this location and its close to everything (using tram or taxi)
- The bar/fridge was empty in the room ! - our room had no place to hung our cloths (or put them) as it was occupied by bed sheets =) - The Hotel rooms is too small, the t.v. set sucks ! the A/C in our room wasn't cooling enough - Speaking of the toilet !! Don't except any amenities from them ! bring your own except the towel ! The shower tub is too small and you need to climb to get there !! and by the time you finish your shower ! you will find the floor wet !
I can't really complain about the hotel because we paid only 40 Euros per night, and it was worth it for that rate, but it was not really as advertised.
The cleaning service was inadequate and the breakfast not very good. The rooftop pool is really a dirty glorified kiddie pool and the poolside bar does not exist.
