-we didn't feel we got the room we reserved and paid an extra $30 per night for (junior suite) as that type of room on their website is described as having both a sofa bed and direct terrace access. Ours had neither but instead a trundle bed with no bedding. We tried to address with the staff member who checked us in but she indicated the language barrier was too great and left it at that. We never saw a staff member again in 3 days, so I am not sure how the other guests managed to get advice and rides places. The only contact we had was a note asking us for more $ (tax).
On a side note we would suggest NOT using the laundry service across and up the street from the hotel. We were overhcharged and picked up our casual mostly cotton and nylon laundry so wrinkled it was unwearable. It must have sat in the basket for hours slightly damp and unfolded for this to occur. We would have been better off leaving it dirty than paying to have this done to it. When we asked him to rectify the situation he told us it would be 1 euro per piece to iron it!
