    • 6.0.Good

      Misleading pictures

      They provide misleading pictures and information about their rooms on hotels.com In reality the room you get is half the size. Besides, the reception lies that the hotel is full when it is literally empty. Bad sound isolation so you can't expect a good sleep at night.

      Annoyed

      I found no large towels to have a shower and at one stage only one hand towel. So I had to go a friend's home to have a shower. This was mentioned to reception on the morning I left

    • 2.0.Poor

      The worse stay ever. The hotel is terrible and the staff is very aggressive. I left after 30 minutes of checking in, so you can imagine what did I find. The hotel refuse to cancel and refund any money. They claim that they are three star hotel so they can be dirty, aggressive and you should accept whatever they offer.
