How could this get a 4-star rating?
It is a mystery to us how this hotel could get a 4-star rating. -The lobby is a small corner on the third floor of another building, where no one was around when we arrived - The photos on Hotels.com are misleading, as the hotel rooms are only on the bottom 3 floors of the side building. From the photos one would assume to get a room in a higher floor. - The room was OK, but very small and lacking amenities such as even a mini-bar or fridge. - The shower did not drain properly, the arrangement of the bathroom was not very practical. For instance the hair-drier was installed blocking the mirror in front of the (small) sink. The mirror in the hallway was covered by a poster, so that it no longer worked as a proper mirror, etc. If this hotel was rated as a 3-star, I would be OK with it, but even then it would not be one of the better 3-star hotels in my experience. In summary: If this hotel deserves a 4-star rating, then the rating system is completely useless. It is a mystery to us how this hotel could have been rated 4-stars.
