Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort
Nothing for foreigners, shower only hot or could
Terrible experience, taxi driver did not know where the place was! When I arrived and showed my driving licence, he told me it was not me, it was a male person, even if I were transgenic, it was an insult! And if I were not happy with his comments I could leave without him paying my money back.
