The location is good and the rooms and hotel area are clean. That's about the only good things I got to say about Venus Mare. Firstly, the owner lady (who's unfortunately always present) is very rude. The hotel staff does not greet the guests. Not once were we wished good morning. We also found out that the hotel doesn't have a free lounging area. It turned out the casual looking chairs outside beside the billiards table are ONLY for those planning to order drinks. The staff will ask you to leave even if you just rest for a while to wait for the billiards table to be available. Also, the hotel has no free wifi. The owner announced that the customers may as well go to the restaurants if they want it free. A few other things to mention are that you are not allowed to throw any toilet paper into the toilet (even though anywhere else in the area it's okay), which means that after a while you will have quite a smell in yout bathroom and the room is cleaned only every two days so it's not a joke. All in all we spent as much as possible time outside of the hotel since we felt much more welcome everywhere else and enjoyed much more than being around the unfriendliness in venus mare.
