Poor 2.0
Tinha um barulho excessivo por causa do bar, as ruas são perigosas, na recepção nos orientaram a não andar mais do que uma quadra por ter risco de assalto, não deveríamos levar nenhum pertence a noite, as pessoas da balada estavam bêbadas, os corredores dos quartos tinham forte odor de maconha, por volta de 3h, mulheres gritavam, escutamos garrafas quebrando, na hora do café da manhã, que era servido no mesmo bar, ainda não estava pronto porque os funcionários limpavam a sujeira deixada. O quarto é quente e não tem ar condicionado, As vagas estavam sujas e o sabonete aberto. Não recomendo.

No início tive problemas com barulho e calor absurdo no quarto porém ao reclamar me trocaram de quarto e me ofereceram um ventilador! O atendimento é fantásticos, todos os funcionários são muito educados e solícitos! O restaurante do hotel tem preços e comidas boas!

Virkelig nogen søde, rar og enormt venlige mennesker. men deres rengøring kunne være meget bedre. Vi havde desværre lidt problemer med kakerlakker de sidste 2 dage. Men udovere det var det et virkeligt godt ophold. deres restaurant er virkelig god!
