False Advertising
I chose this hotel because it said they had balcony rooms on their website. I received free room upgrade so I had my own bathroom toilet etc. There was no balcony, nothing to cook with, Microwave, Stove Top etc but there was a Coffee Machine but I don't drink Coffee. The Shower Head kept falling down. After hours you have to ring a bell so you can be let in.
