We had no air conditioning the whole 10 days of being there, after numerous times of complaining.

The hotel is very nice. The breakfast was delicious! Nice view from my room in the 4th floor. The bathroom was a little bit small, but acceptable at all. Except for the blind in the bathroom everything was very nice. The views and the hotel in general are very, very nice.
