The hotel is next to an express way and a hospital. Unfortunately, the windows are so old that they don't provide any sound proof. Ambulance and helicopter noises are also part of the location problem. The toilette in room 708 has a black rim at the water level while the toilette in room 121 has disgusting yellow marks. The coffee maker in my room didn't work. And daily room service was limited to changing a few towels. The basement walkway from the garage to the elevator smelled so moldy and was worsened by some fruity fragance. It is the worst hotel experience I have ever had. I will never return to this place.
