However, when I got to the hotel, first of all, I received very bad treatment from the recepctionists, who were all rude and totally lost. The elevator is really old and kind of scary.

The key electric system was supposed to turn the devices off, but didn´t work... More

I stayed at the Bristol Castelmar Hotel for 4 nights during a conference that was held at the same location. Upon entering the hotel you are greeted with a large loby, with some interesting decoration and your typical cocktail bar. Checking in to the hotel was done with ease, no complaints there. Opening up my hotel room door, I found... More
