          They charged me extra money without any reason. I contacted them, but they could not find what was the reason. The were supposed to investigate the problem and solve it, but it is not solved yet.

          Great hotel. I definitely enjoyed my stay and will return. The rooms were clean, the staff were very friendly and the amenities were excellent. It was a great location as well. The price is also very reasonable.
