Que sorpresa grande ver que todo lo escrito es elogiando cada aspecto del hotel, pero que en la puntuación no refleja esa realidad.

Had a reservation for 3 days,decided to stay 2, was charged for all 3 days, staff and supervisor on duty did not want to do anything about this. Morning manager was arrogant. Facilities are very old, rooms look like the 70’s. I will never stay here again and definitely do not recommend anyone to stay at this hotel. At night you feel very unsafe in the area. Never again!

Es lamentable que algunos huéspedes no comenten la verdad de los hechos. Cuando hizo la consulta se le comento nuevamente las condiciones de su reserva, y conforme con esto dio a entender que había comprendido, sin hacer ninguna otra consulta o volver a insistir con el tema. Lo triste es que valiendose de falsedades pretenda canalizar su malestar haciendo comentarios prejuiciosos y faltos a la verdad.

Arrived at 10:30 and was very ill. Asked if I could have the room early as I desperately needed to lay down. I was told no and shown no compassion although they could see I was suffering. I was told to come back in a few hours. About 45 minutes later I noticed some guests being given keys so I went back and asked for my room again. The front desk staff had some excuses but then they found a room for me. Shame on this hotel as this is certainly not 5 star service. I get treated much better in 3 star hotels. I would never stay here again

I stayed for nearly a week at the Hotel Emperador with a group. We all liked the stay. The location was good, with restaurants a short walk away, all the way from hot dog stands (across the street) to fast food to near-fine dining. The hotel restaurant was also good. I would have preferred more and better towling and dual pane windows, but the people were great. Would stay again.

We chose the Presidential Suite for our one night stay. AACC was broken! Had to call twice to find that out. Hotel offered us a fan, to change room in another floor or a discount on our stay. Tired as we were opted for the last alternative. Street noise was unbearable. There is this ridiculous street light audible sign for the blind that will keep you awake all night. Couldn't sleep for more than 3 hours! Windows should be sound proof.

Hay situaciones que escapan al control de uno, y que a veces pueden suceder. El daño de un equipo no tiene ni día ni horario, solo ocurre, y obviamente uno hace todo lo posible para solucionarlo, aunque a veces las limitaciones del momento o del horario no hacen posible que sea de forma inmediata. Respecto del sonido del semáforo para ciegos, es algo que no depende de nosotros sino mas bien del Municipio. De todos modos podemos indicar que no es una molestia en absoluto, no se escucha ni se siente, y mucho menos en la habitación en la que se ha hospedado el huésped. Es muy probable que el huésped haya estado molesto y desvelado por el daño que se produjo en el equipo de aire acondicionado.
