When it is only staffed for 1 hours for booking in. When you have to be buzzed in by intercom and then pick up a phone to telephone the owner and have to pick up your key from a table in reception. When the advertised bar (and indeed the whole hotel) is unstaffed most of the time. When the bath... More
