Good 6.0
Good location but staff level not up to standard
- Good location - Very annoying that key stopped working and had to be reconfigured on daily basis going back to reception - room was much smaller than expected, I had to change into slightly bigger double room - Good towels but bad smelling throughout the overall 10 days stay - outside calls from room were not working for full 10 days. Very annoying not having local mobile phone - Staff service was poor with only very few exceptions
