Well...I 've been to that hotel 2 weeks ago and I have to say that its site is way too misleading. Rooms seem in the site large and comfortable, bathroom seems really large and clean, they say that they have a buffet with abundant delicacies, wi fi, a comfortable lobby where you can enjoy your drink and good overall services...the truth is this site is a total LIE!!!!!!!!!
First of all, my room was soooo narrow and small that I had to climb the bed to go from the other side of the room where was the closet (which by the way was awful!). The bathroom and especially the shower was so narrow that honestly I had had a claustophobic crisis in there. They had soaps anf shampoos probably from the stone age and their towels smelled something between moisture and mildew. When I've actually asked for new towels because these stinked, an old lady in the reception told me that this was impossible as they are FAMOUS for their clean towels! (OH MY GOD!!!!!!!! PLEAEAEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Breakfast was tragic. You had to wait at the line (YES! at the line!) for at least 15 minutes to find a table to sit. And regarding the buffet...what buffet?????? They didn't have even cereals, fruits or green tea (in fact I'm not sure that they know what green tea is!). Another thing that really annoyed me there was that they allowed smoking in the lobby. I think this was totally unappropriate.
And speaking about unappropriate things...well in this lobby you will find stuffed animals (yes, you've readed correctly...stuffed animals...) How stupid and uncivilized is this anyway? What are we? Hunters in the 18 century? Badger, fox and wolf are protected species and in this hotel they have three stuffed ones in front of their main window in the lobby. PETA please take a position!
Furthermore, wi fi? This must be a joke! They have had a router hanging in their main door and that was all. This of cource means that you don't have wifi in your own room but basically only in front of the reception.
Air condition was also terrible there! You either had to freeze or sweat. There was no middle situation!
And the best part of all, I payed 80 per day for this place and I'm still waiting for the receipt to be sent...
