We have arrived on a Sunday and the hotel was closed. We had to call someone which provided us a PIN to enter the front door. We booked the hotel on the day before and therefore we missed the mail with instructions and PIN, but it was not mentioned when we booked it. When we finally entered the hotel it was very smelly as well as our room (suite). We got 3 pass codes for wireless, but all 3 were not working. After phoning ( it was no one at reception) with someone, they promised that it should work, but they would check if everything was OK. After one hour waiting for a call back he told me that there was some technical issues and he will re-set the system and will issue a new pass code to me. This one was not working as well.
Our room was not really clean. We found some strange red pills in our cupboard from other hotel guests.
The location seems ok when you want to partying, but not for families with children.
