After a beautiful journey by train, we arrived at Newara. Nice arrival at the hotel, coffee and tea was provided. Friendly staff; So far so good.
Dinner was very bad:no atmosphere,choice between only 2 main courses,dry and cold food,no drinks were offered during dinner.
Back at the room we had a nice cold shower,after complaining nobody shows up. Towells were also dirty.
In the evening we had much noise from other guests. Stairway and rooms were very noisy,together with the leaking shower. Thereby we could get sleep around 00.30hr.
Around 5 o'clock in the morning we were awake,because of the Arab praying rituals. Nice cultural insights.After that,the nearby traffic kept us awake. A staffmember decided to sweep the stairway,also a bit noisy at 06.00hr. We enjoyed the HBO/movie package on the television.
A unique experience for one try, definitly no second.
