Upon arriving, there was an array of slightly more expensive cars parking directly in front of the entrance (God forbid you have to park it where nobody can see it...). Upon entering, the hotel reception had a sign to walk to the bar area for checkin. Somebody was with us and they showed us through a labirynth of hallways to our room. A few loose electrical wires dangling from the neatly painted ceiling were visible on the way.
The room had a waterbed, which on one side was pretty warm, even though the temperature was set to low. Quickly crawling underneath the bed and unplugging helped to solve the problem. Outside we had 36°C so sleeping on a sauna bed is not ideal. Anyway.
I neatly unpacked my smartphone charger, plugged it into the outlet next to the bed. No power... Didn't I just unplug something else and thus create a free working outlet? yups, so plugged it in underneath the bed and lo and behold : power.
The room did not have airconditioning, but was not scorching hot either. The rooms look great, are neatly kept clean. Some rooms have the welcome map with hotel infos, some don't.
Wlan is there, albeit in a rather moderate signal strenght. If you got signal, don't move.
The bathroom is modern, but has some beauty flaws. One of the shower doors was unhinged near the bottom and gave the impression of falling down any second now. And the shower floor is so slippery that I felt I was slowly moving whilst standing still. be careful there.
Bar service forgot us once in the evening after ordering drinks. After about 40 minutes they noticed somethign was wrong and brought the drinks slightly later.
At breakfast, the same happened. Upon ordering eggs and bacon, nothing happened. I had to ask again whereupon the breakfast was served a few minutes later. Strange, since both in the evening and in the morning there were hardly any guests left and the staff was not stressed.
On checking out, they had to crosscheck with management, because one of our party had ordered a single room, but was given a double room. So things were not that clear, but it posed not too much of a problem.
All in all, not bad for the rpice, but expect not to be pampered like a king either. Don't get me wrong, it's a good hotel, but make sure to find a few flaws and do contact the management to direct their attention to certain points.
