With an alleged 4 stars (not referring to the neighbouring 3-star edifice) and a price range (double room) from EUR 119-140, all we can say is:
Don’t go there. Seriously.
Arriving with a group of 16 people at 3pm, we find that the rooms still are not available. Politely asking about this at front desk (and mentioning that we had booked as of 12:00), we get a very rude, aloof and arrogant “rooms ready at 4pm!” as a reply.
By 4pm we find we’re actually lucky that we at least now have keys – at least in comparison to the many other new guests, who people the lobby on couches, chairs and the floor – waiting for their rooms.
One of the three small lifts is broken, so getting up to the floors and the finally available rooms turns out to be not all that easy, either.
Arriving at our floor, I am almost convinced there is a pool, after all – because of the intense stench of chlorine on the floor - and in our room.
Fresh air is out of question, because not only is the handle of the window broken, it is actually ripped out of the frame and hangs there dangling.
The fridge does not work, but then again ours is empty, anyway (some people in the group at least have some bottles in their –warm- fridges).
The TV is broken, the door is paneling off on the inside and the sink is damaged (but can at least still be used).
P.S. You find the following on the hotel’s homepage: “After complete refurbishing the hotel rooms are fitted with modern furniture and equipment. Business rooms are equipped with a TV with programmes transmitted by satellite, radio, safe, mini-bar, and telephone with direct dialling. Each room is air-conditioned and the temperature can be regulated according to the guest's comfort. The hotel suites, in addition, have stylish furniture, antiallergic wooden floors, and fully equipped bathrooms. Both the hotel and the rooms are equipped with modern fire-prevention systems.”
--> To make it short: don’t go there.
