We booked this room because it had a four star rating and free wifi. First of all, the front entrance was difficult to find—the sign is on one side, where there IS no door, but you have to walk the opposite way much further to get there. When we checked in, they could not find our reservation. We got up to our room which was very smelly, opened up the windows and had a gorgeous view. But the patio was too dirty to walk on without shoes, and the floor inside was equally as dirty. The sink placement only allowed the bathroom door to open 2/3 of the way. The extremely tight bathroom also had a bidet, but not really room for it so the bidet was placed in front of the shower door. A towel was laying over the shower drain which I picked up, only to discover it was keeping the sewer smells from drifting out. The internet did not work so we went to the hotel lounge. Still did not work. We inquired at the front desk and were told the internet does not really work here, especially past the second floor. But it’s a four star hotel—the girl just shrugged her shoulders and turned away. Unbelievable. Old, needs refurbishing BADLY—do not stay here.
