Very disappointed with standards of accommodation at the hotel, although
a friendly staff.
This is a very tired, run down hotel.
With a beautiful misleading façade/exterior and a disappointing decaying interior, made of cheap, old-fashioned, dated and poor quality furniture and fixtures.
The rooms look like they have not been decorated in years..
Shabby furniture, impersonal decorations, without the slightest taste...
No class at all!!
Somehow this hotel still has a 4* rating, which was probably justified some 50 years ago. Now, in my opinion, a 2* rate would be even too high.
Prices of course are those of a 4* class, which make this hotel a very bad value for your money!
Then, we stayed here at the beginning of August. The daily outside temperature was about 35-37 C degrees, and the best we could have in the room during the night was around 25.
We discovered that rooms had no air conditioning, so we had to sleep with the windows wide open.
Air conditioning is an exclusive of the lobby floor!...
With only a poor fan, in the room we are gasping!
The is a safe in the room, which is good!
The only problem is that it doesn't work with a code, like 99% of nowadays' hotel safes.
No, it needs a key... Ehm.. THE key!!
Because, yes, there is only ONE key for each room and guests have to contact the reception each time the want to open the safe!!!
Old good keys are really loved here.
Like safes, rooms still open with a key, attached to an extremely heavy key-holder, which you necessarily have to deposit at the reception when going out...
Here we are still in another era, far before the time when magnetic cards will make their appearance.
Breakfast is also quite poor. The offer is definitely basic (in both quantity and selection) and no "healthy" products are proposed.
Moreover, guests have to bear the same tiring and depressing CD of old pop song's instrumental versions.
In order to escape from it, people eat as quickly as possible.
The central location is the only plus, but that is not enough to make me
