The stay started badly, having reserved three rooms and an overbooking meant that they wanted to move one of our party to another hotel in town (by taxi). At midnight, and as a part of a group, this was very bad news as we needed to leave early in the morning together. The reception and the rooms are nice, but the temperature was 23 degrees (celsius) and impossible to open window or get AC to work. The result was a bad nights sleep. Trying to use the telephone was a waist (to get help with the AC) as there was no number to reception, and no answer when I called from my mobile. We needed cab in the morning, which we waited 25 minutes for (reception should have told us to book earlier) and, with the extra pick-up, we almost lost our flights!
