We stayed at the Strand Tower hotel last weekend. Sadly, I was very disappointed with several staff for not understanding what it means to serve the clients. The hotel itself is in need of some serious attention, from elevators to zircons and basics like bathroom leaks. Neglect seems to be the order of many items there. Sadly, all are routine...

On top of that there was no water on the room and the "king size" bed was so single beds next to each other and they kept moving apart from each other. The gym...
