After finding pubic hairs in the toilet on the day of arrival, it took the hotel about 4 hours to "properly" clean the toilet. A closer look at the rest of the bathroom, however, revealed that it was rather not thoroughly cleaned. The room equipment was quite old, and I could find diverse wrappings (candy bars, etc.) behind chairs, curtains and the TV-cupboard (this is where I finally found the control unit for the air conditioning; otherwise I wouldn't have dared to look behind it). This air condition was quite loud and stinky, which is why I had to turn it off. The internet connection reminded me of the good old days with my 56k modem and the wireless lan in the lobby was inoperative. Similar result with the two costumer PCs in the office. To cut things short: I would have expected more for my money.
