Poor Wi-Fi reception.
Although the hotel Website states that Wi-Fi is available in the guest rooms, the signal is very poor and you may find yourself having to go down t the lobby in order to get a good connection. The Wi-Fi is slow and needs to be upgraded.
Stairs to the rooms.
There are many stairs to the guest rooms and so you will have to carry your own suitcases up and down the stairs upon arrival and departure. The hotel staff do not offer to help you.
The breakfast served at this hotel is of low quality and variety. Some guests have reported that they were not served enough food for everyone at the table and that the 'hot foods' were cold and unappetising.
