Since this is a "restaurant with rooms" there is no dedicated reception to take care of issues. For example, the restaurant waitstaff don't always have correct tourist information and my reservation request was mishandled so that I was forced to move to a more expensive hotel on my last night. The internet was not working at all anywhere in the hotel the three days I was there, though I was told repeatedly that it was and I was even asked to move to a different room where it was supposedly working. Finally the breakfast was shameful. A continental breakfast is fine, but empty jelly jars and cereal crumbs from the bottom of the box leave a bad impression. The rooms are large and clean, as many reviewers have noted, but the mattress was quite saggy.
