My wife and I spent three terrible nights - Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The noise of nearby discos and restaurants were so loud that we could not sleep at all. After our first night, we asked for a change of room but there none available. The room appeared that it needed a refurbishment. In fact, the shower control was broken during our last night stay. Not easy to have a shower without a working shower. On arrival, we found only one bathrobe in the room, but another one was supplied the following day after a request.
At breakfast, I asked for the option of not having the buffet as I wanted just a plate of fresh fruits. I was told that they do not serve a la carte breakfast and I would be charged for a full break fast. I did not have breakfast again there.
The hotel has a great plus: the quality of the staff - they were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is also located near the ferry stop for boat cruise on the river, near a bus stop, which is very convenient, given the traffic jam at night - better spend time in a bus in the traffic than in a taxi. If one likes to party until dawn then this is the hotel to stay.
