Fair 4.0
The area is terribke, and the hotel looks uncozy. Breakfast is poor, Staff are friendky but the hotel is for locals, a bit rundown. I couldn't wait to get out. Certainly, it looked better in the pics. No elevator. Breakfast on floor 5. At breakfast, tv on with the burial of some person. Not the idesl program to wnjoy breakfast. The linen and towels had seen better days. Not a 3,5 hotel at all. Exoedia shoukd rate better.
