We did not arrive in CP until approx 10.30 pm and had organised for the key to be left in the door. It was an extremely hot night and we were disappointed that the staff didn't think to turn on the air conditioning for us before our arrival. The room was stuffy and the small air conditioner took hours to cool the room. The furnishings were dated, and the linen, especially the towels need replacing. We attempted to have breakfast at the crystal cafe, but staff had covered up the buffet with tablecloths about an hour before it was meant to close. Whilst we were happy just to have a room for the night, we couldn't help but feel we had over payed for the privilege.
