The plumbing system was unbelievable. It seems that hot water was only available in the duty manager's room. We had no water at all in our first...

TV was not working for almost 1 day(no signal coming).Breakfast was like waiting for almost till lunch.On top of it, the service was one of the worse.I would not go there again & would not recommend anyone else as well.
