At 550e per night I was expecting a 5 start hotel. Unfortunately, this hotel didn't meet my expectations for a 3 start hotel.
What I didn't like:
-air conditioning wasn't nearly as powerful as it needed to be.. resulting in a hot room and uncomfortable sleep
-decor is old and cheap
-bed is hard and has really ugly, old sheets/blankets
-food was really, really not good (stale, cheap, yuck!). more like a best western buffet (evening snack and breakfast)
-linens, glasses, etc. are all very ugly ..like something you'd pick up at a 80's restaurant depot sale
-bathroom shower leaked water everywhere
-toiletries were not high quality
-in general, hotel feels seedy and out of date - absolutely nothing charming about this property
-charged for rediculous things like ice and internet access (when paying 540 per night ice should be complimentary)
-no gym, no pool, no business center, internet access very, very spotty (and charged 10e per day)
What I liked
-Area was nice
-Staff were very nice
-Entrance to hotel very nice (looks very promising at first impression)
I must warn you that I felt completely taken advantage of.. and in fact, I'm now worried about trip advisor reviewers.. I don't understand how anyone could think this was a hotel worth 540e per night (or anything above about 100e per night).
If you are looking for a charming, beautiful, 5-star experience then do not book this hotel.
