If I wrote this review the first day I arrived I would had said its simply Rubbish ! We made sure that the hotel would have Wifi before booking and they confirmed that it was available , but when we arrived we were told that wifi is only available on the ground floor and plug in Internet in the rooms. When I complained the lady at the reception said she can change and give us rooms on the first floor where the wifi is available, so we had to wait a couple extra hours for the rooms to be prepared. We booked 2 double rooms which were extremely small to accommodate 2 people, and our first impression was even worse when we saw the filthy walls. Since we were on the first floor we tried to use the stairs but the bad smell was so bad we preferred to use the lift. However I must admit that the sleeping quality was ok as long as the neighboring room occupants were not talking loud or snoring too much because there is absolutely no insulation. Breakfast was from poor up to average, there was no way I would try eating the bacon which was floating in greasy oil mixed with sausages and scrambled eggs, discussing to look at and eat ! The reception staff was very kind and friendly, but this does not improve the low quality of the hotel or no food or snacks available at 15:00, no room service and dinner not available on Fridays. The only reason we booked this hotel was because it was next to the expo but surely next time we will a have to book another hotel for the comfort and go through the trouble to drive or use a train to the Expo. Leave alone the fact that this hotel is defiantly not value for money !
