It was a last minute booking using the phone number shown on a Tripadvisor hotel page - in haste I thought it was a direct line to a hotel (not Hotel Max) but it became clear that it was a booking agency. Most hotels were full and we were offered a room at Hotel Max. I do not recall being asked if I wanted a smoke free room, or being warned that we would be in a smokers' room. I arrived late in the evening, for a one night stay and no alternative room was available.
The hotel was good. The smoke in the room very bad. Subsequently management reacted very positively and showed great concern. Apparently less than 10% of their rooms are for smokers. I hope they will join with so many good hotels and become completely smoke free.
So do stay at Hotel Max, but in the short term make sure you know what sort of room you are getting. I personally will try and avoid booking hotels through a booking agency.
