The hotel is well located in the old town, near to all the main attractions but this is the only thing i liked.The rooms are tiny, i had to put my luggage up in the bed just to open it.The pictures i saw before booking was not accurate, Photoshop? A good angle? Another room? Sooo disappointing. I am glad i stayed only for 2 days. The bathroom was very old and it was really smelly and toilet paper was dirty.Non smoking room but smelled like cigarettes.No soundproof at all, it was like sleeping in the corridor. This hotel is a 4 stars? why? The breakfast buffet was ok, nothing special. Reception staff was ok, waiters were really friendly and polite.I was satisfied with staff except Mrs Kathy extremely unprofessional and rude. I heard she was/is manager.That s why the hotel is in such a mess. Roof garden was abandoned , we asked the reception and they showed us the elevator but neglect to tell us nobody was there. Really bad experience, hope nobody else makes the same mistake i did and believe photos are real. I intend to write an email to the hotel as well to inform them but i am sure they know whats happening. Just go somewhere else, not worth it at all.
