We arrived here after a very long drive and after a long stressful search for the free parking we got a space.
When I walked into reception I described where we parked to check it was free and the guy was not helpful at all in fact sarcastic.
Anyway we paid the deposit for the key and got charged for getting the cash out and went to our dorm. We walked in and no one said hello and although having a bathroom in the dorm sounds good all it did was smell of urine.
So we went downstairs and upgraded to a private room and the attitude changed completely. We no longer needed to leave a deposit for a key and the guy was suddenly helpful.
He told us there was club above our room AFTER we had paid. But the private was really nice and clean !
