My friend and I were very excited about staying in this beautiful hotel.
We had booked the room months in advance, purchasing a room which overlooked a temple. However when we arrived, our room which supposedly overlooked the temple, in fact looked out onto an Olive tree which blocked the entire view of the temple!
We politely went to discuss this with the receptionist who smirkingly told us 'It's not our fault there is an olive tree. What, do you want us to move it?'
The rest of the stay was pleasant enough, however the rudeness of the staff and having to pay for a view we didn't receive tainted the whole stay for us.
