The room was equiped with an electric room heating system, but without radiator in the bathroom. Due to set to defrosting level only the room was on a very low temperature at check in. Setting the thermostat to a higher value will only work, if the room key (ore something similar) keeps the main electrical switch on. But even then, the bathroom stays cold.
The most disappointing "feature" of this hotel is the "High speed internet access" in rooms.
Attached picture shows how the Hotel is describing the internet access on its homepage.
5 GPB per hour in 2012, but not for public areas only!? Nothing more to add..
