Very bad and old
First room they gave me was dirty the lights are not working so i asked to change the room they moved me to another one but it was no different from the first one plus it has bugs that you can see on the wall so i made a complain again and they say that the only rooms available so i asked for the manager and when he came and seen the room condition he upgraded us to a delux room which has no view but it was better but still the shower smells and the room safe not working so i called the room service and they said they will send someone but nobody showed up next day same story until the check out, stayed for 3 nights. احد اسوء الفنادق في بنتوتة لا جداً قديمة الغرف الجدران كلها تشققات والنمل يسرح ويمرح عالجدارغيرولنا الغرفة اكثر من مرة لاكن نفس المشكله اخيرا طلبت المدير وعملنا ترقيه الى غرفة ديلوكس وغرفة الديلوكس كانت افضل بشي بسيط وقبلنا فيها لاكن المفاجأة كانت وقت الشور لما تشغل الدش حق الشور تشم ريحة الموية مجاري وانتو بكرامة ولما بلغتهم قالو بنرسل الفني يشوف المشكله وعملت الشيك اوت ولا جا فني ولا هم يحزنونحسبي الله عليهم ٣ ايام بدون شور. ابداً ما انصح احد يسكن في هدا الفندق افضل ما فيه منظر المحيط واعتقد جميع فنادق بنتوته بتحصل فيها نفس المنظر وممكن احسن
