Do not book this hotel !!!
The fancy lobby and a glass elevator are only a facade for very basic and dirty rooms.
The first welcome, when we arrived, was a cockroach in the "clean" toilet and many mosquitos in the room.
The sheets and towel were all dirty or with spots and some even had holes (see attached pictures, thede are only few examples). They did not have hot water in the showers. In the seldom occation there were hot water, it was after we waited for over 15 minutes in the shower.
The color of the water was dark brown.
The only two good things I can say about this hotel is that when we called the reception to deal with a problem, the response was prompt (thus, sending someone with another dirty towel or can not bring hot water does not really help) and that the food in the resturant was OK (well, needless to say, they forgot to change the maps between dinner and break fast).
