The first 7 days, every single day we had to ask for our toilet to be fixed as it didn't flush and everyday they would say they'll send someone and never did, we'd wait 15 min for the elevator to arrive and once we...

This hotel is all about being average, there are only 2 positive points about it: first the location and second the helpful staff. If you would like to stay in a quite hotel with a delicious breakfast, I don't recommend it.
