2/10 Poor

The worst experience ever. Starting with the condition of the room, the hygiene standard, to the disgusting attitude from the staff there. The only person who had a friendly and hospitable attitude was the guy who helped with my bag and room service.

2/10 Poor

Vidrigt! Minus -3 stjärnor
Rekommenderar inte till någon. 1. Väldigt väldigt smutsigt. - täcken hade fläckar fick lägga Mina kläder på sängen och sova på dem. 2. Duschen har inget tack. 3. Ingen tvål Ingen schampo 4. Handduken med fläckar. 5. Smutsigt badrum 6. Stop i dusch brunnen. 7. Ingen ljudisoleringen maskiner till vatten o ac låter in i rummet. Även personal o dess musik hördes in till rummet. Förstår inte hur den här kan vara 3 stjärnigt de e rena bedrägeriet. Det enda positiva var att personalen var trevliga.
