Dear LSAML K, Thank you so much for this detailed feedback. We really appreciate your comments and it's a real pleasure for us to read your review. Of course, we will share it with the restaurant team also as you enjoyed the moment past in the Swiss Bistro. Concerning the temperature in the room, that's totally true, this is managed by a central AC so, no way to change it yourself. Also, we will inform the technician about this problem to improve this. Once again, we thank you for your very kind feedback and we hope to see you soon. Regards, Jonathan - Assistant manager
