One of the worst hotel I stayed. It needs a (extreme) makeover! The room (called executive suite) was big but...that was the only pros. It was enough clean but the bathroom was old and shattered. And if you are 3 people you have to make by yourself the second bed (in my experience never happened before). Breakfast: the quality was...
