Firstly the corridors to the rooms are very poorly lit, some might say gloomy and it makes it very difficult to find the card access spot,on the door and then the internal cardholder to enable the lights to...

Luxurious hotel with bath robe trimmings far out of centre with a bleak entrance. Large comfortable room. But then... internet charges E10/day, bottle of water E5, dull breakfast. No coffee for those leaving before breakfast serving starts.
