We booked three rooms at this place primarily because it said on their website that they had 24 hour shuttle service to the airport. In reality. the shuttle starts to run at 8:15 AM. Since all of flights were earlier, we all had to hire taxis to get to the airport ($28 Euro with 4 small suitcases).The shuttle runs until 11:00 AM, then takes a break until, 3:30.
We had reservations on the shuttle for 6 of us to get into town, but so many people got on the shuttle without having reservations (no one checked), that there was not room for all 6 of us, so we ended up taking 2 taxis.
Bar service was HORRIBLE. Took forever to get drinks, and then the bills. They were also out of two of the four items that we ordered.
Lastly.. the rooms were clean, but HOT and the beds were incredibly uncomfortable; very hard mattresses.
Most of the staff was quite nice.
We did not get breakfast because our flights left so early. They did not have coffee made, either.
