We were booked into this hotel due to our airline cancelling the flight due to malfunction. We arrived at hotel around midnight after having stayed at the air-port all day waiting for plane to be fixed. Airline was not able to fix plane so ended up booking this particular hotel. Probably only survives since it is close to airport, can't be because of service or facilities.
Staff was unfriendly & unhelpful - bordering on being rude - and lacks any basic courtesy. Not possible to get anything to eat (everyone from the airplane was hungry since shops and restaurants at airport had closed around 5 or 6Pm and no one had eaten for hours). No mini- bar to even have some candy or soft drinks. Nothing. Complaints were met with sneers & indifference. I had to practically beg the lady to get us something to eat. I eventually got 2 spartan ham/cheese sandwich for my kids for 20 Euros - RIP OFF. But I had no choice. Kids had not eaten in hours. Then other people came down to reception to ask for something to eat and she refused them. I guess I was the lucky one!
Room had a slight smell. Maybe because it was hot outside. There was no air-con in the room and very stuffy inside the room. Went down to ask if they could upgrade us to rooms or suite with air-con. I did not mind paying whatever it cost I told them and then found out they don't' have any rooms with air-cons. Reception said "you can just open the window" - oblivious to the heat outside and lack of any wind to provide ventilation in the room.
The corridors where the common stair case and lift was was filled with a lots of insects - some very large ones. Yuck! Not a nice hotel.
In my opinion it is really flat out misleading to say this hotel is a 4 star hotel. It is not. It is more like 2 star. Don't understand how they can mark it as 4*. Only stayed there due to airline arranging this.
