    I keep reading about poor conditions, no pool, no restaurant and ongoing renovations. What can you tell me about those items? What is the immediate neighborhood like? What's the neighborhood like?

    We've booked for tomorrow 7th August & I've just seen the reviews.Most of them are pretty shocking. Has the hotel been renovated since 2014 when most of these reviews were written.
