I'm writing the review from my up to now favorite hotel where I used to enjoy fresh air from an opened window in my room.
Recently the window handles in all the rooms were taken off, and the windows cannot be opened at all! The official explanation is safety, yet I have the impression that the management does not plan to invest in repairing the wooden window frames that became hard to close with time, so the easiest and cheapest way was to seal the windows. I would never expect such a customer service in a hotel where a night stay costs $ 400-500, breakfast not included.
The rooms are not air conditioned, and the fan does not work all the time.
Helpful hints to make your stay more comfortable:
- ask for a portable fan. They will bring it to your room at no extra cost;
- let hot shower run for a couple of minutes, and the air in your room will be less dry;
- ask for a room opposite the sunny side, especially when it becomes hot in the summertime, so that you avoid "baking" in your room - even fully drawn curtains will not help much.
