  • 2.0.Poor

    Really bad experience

    I booked a room for two and then the hotel staff told me that it was only for one person. Room was extremely small and very uncomfortable the room was cold all night long because they had a window open in the bathroom. The cable system was on and off while watching movies or news impossible to follow up with anything

    Me fue bien lo que la habitación era un poco chica o la cama grande, y el frigobar tenía el escape roto (que ruido hacía!!)

    No es recomendable, salvo la ubicación. Todo precario, no volvería a pagar 41 euros para alojarme ahí. En la página dice parking gratuito pero cuando le preguntas te dicen que hay que reservar antes y no facilitan las cosas. La atención no me gustó.

    Bom ficamos o suficiente para encontrar outro hotel. O primeiro quarto, não tinha luz no quarto, so dos abajures bem fraca, o ar não funcionava ,o ventilador de teto não funcionava, (estava uns 30 C ), a macaneta da porta caia toda hora, roupas de cama suja, banheiro sujo tipo um nojo, um cheiro insuportavel de cigarro e mofo, o outro quarto que foi reformado não estava tão ruim, mas o ar não estava funcionando tb e o vaso estava trincado e tambem tinha um cheiro insuportavel dr cigarro

    Mala experiencia

    La habitación tenía olor raro, no era un olor agradable. Hice reserva para 2 personas y contaron que era una sola. Pedí instrucciones a la persona de recepción para ir al shopping de punta carretas y no sabía. Bastante desconforme. Limpieza media tirando a mala. Desayuno flojo, poca variedad.

    Hotel oferece garagem e qdo chegamos tivemos que pagar o equivalente a R$ 66,00 por uma pernoite pelo não disponibilidade, sem reembolso pelo hotel. Só consegui estacionar na garagem oferecida no segundo dia após reclamar muito. Cama desconfortável, café da manhã precário e localização muito boa é o que há de melhor no hotel. Não retorno a me hospedar neste Hotel, tampouco o classifico na categoria 3 estrelas.
