False advertising- the hotel is terrible
reception area, reception staff, hotel manager
dissapointing, the food was the same everyday, we got stuck in the lift, the room was dirty,the shower floor was grimy, the room was tiny, the sleeper couch was broken,no space to put clothing, the room supposed to sleep four ( where and how do you ensure confort plus space for luggage) they ran out of linen, the room and hotel did not meet what was sold on the site and was not worth the money paid.
