We were booked to stay in this hotel by our tour company. From the outside the hotel's white marble exterior was appealing. Next to the entrance the hotel's name and the four stars it has been awarded were prominently displayed. In the lobby there was more white marble. The "four star" label ended there. In our room the air conditioning did not function. The toilet did not flush either; we had to lift the top and play with the mechanism to make it flush. It became clear to us that the "four star" classification was an exaggeration; such sloppy management did not deserve it. Avoid the hotel if you can.
