I normally sleep with ear plugs when at hotels but at this hotel I was awaken at 5 AM with a terrible banging noise. I never heard anything like this before. I called the reception to find out what was going on and they told me that it is the next door restaurant cutting chicken for the day. They apologized and said that they have had million complaints about this noise from guests every night and they tried to talk to the restaurant but it does not work - there is nothing they can do about it. As a result I got only 2 hours of sleep; my night and the next day were ruined. So, my advice - AVOID THIS PLACE IF YOU WANT TO HAVE SOME SLEEP.
