What a crock. I booked this hotel over booking.com specifically because A - I had work to do and needed a spacious, comfortable space to do it with wireless internet and B - it was going to be very warm and I wanted that space to be air-conditioned. What I got was a nice, spacious room which was very comfortable. i paid extra for the room facing the quiet side, which was a good thing, because that evening it stormed and it was perfect to sleep with the windows wide open. The next day was hot, as forecast. I returned to my room at about 2 to work and it was starting to get pretty warm. No problem, turn on the air-con. Ha ha. What a joke on me. Soon it was blistering hot in my room, no matter that I had the drapes drawn all day to keep the sun out. I commented to the person at the front desk, and got a non-reply. Back to my sweatbox to try and work. The manager/owner gave me some b.s. about how the 'hotel' has air-conditioning but the actual rooms do not. What a crock! The rooms have these remote-controlled 'boxes' which - get this - the management keeps at the front desk. Guests are not allowed access to those magic remotes. He came to my room, which was I swear about 90 degrees, and he helpfully opened my window (oh geepers, why didn't I think of that) and turned the thermostat to 16 celsius, not that I could tell that it made any difference. The point is, the hotel clearly advertises that the rooms have air-conditioning. Just like the rooms have a toilet, a shower, a desk, a bed, a lamp. Using the manager's logic, all of these things should be in the hallway, and not in the actual room. Just like the air-con. Even the breakfast room was uncomfortably hot. All of this in a hotel which advertises that it has air-conditioning. I will never stay in this deceitful place again.
