We were kept waiting over 20 minutes in reception as the manager was "too busy" to decide if there was a room available for us. We were asked at least 6 times if we would prefer the rather downmarket sister hotel across the road. We were eventually granted a room with a mountain view... It actually was overlooking an ugly concrete underpass. The room seemed ok apart from the view but the soundproofing was truly appalling. It felt as though the occupants next door were actually in our bathroom rather than their own. We were above the restaurant so the noise from breakfast service wakened us around 06:45. The wifi was also poor with a different login/password required for each device. We were also constantly interrupted following our arrival, firstly by a maintenance guy who spent some time in the bathroom but didn't repair either the toilet roll holder or the shower rail which were hanging off the wall. The we received a call saying that the previous residents would need access as they had left their passports in the room safe- they never arrived which was strange but stopped us from relaxing.
