2/5 Poor

Travelled with group
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
The electrical outlets in the room did not work and there was no wifi at all as they stated they had in their description. The hotel was very noisy making it difficult to sleep at night. When we arrived at the hotel we were advised that there credit card machine was not working therefore they could not process payment at that time. We were told that they were working on fixing the problem and to check back in the morning. We went by front desk in the morning before we set out to explore the city and the machine was still down. Once we returned from a day of sightseeing, we were told that we had to pay with cash immediately. Now, I do not carry a large amount of cash with me when I travel and it was too late to go to a bank. The front desk clerkwanted me to write down my credit card number and code so he could process payment later. I definitely refused to do that. Then he called the "Owner" of the hotel and passed the phone to me because she wanted to speak to me. She was irate and yelled at me demanding that I pay at that very moment. She even threatened to call the police. It was late at night and I told them I would go find a bank to process my credit card in the morning. The situation was getting intense so I reluctantly tried the ATM machine outside the hotel but it was not working. It was a very uncomfortable situation which made my girlfriend very upset. This whole situation was blown out of proportion by a hot headed "owner”. We will definitely never go back there.
