The view is great.
The hotel is old.
The elevator is moody and not always read your room card. you have to practice many times and see if you are lucky, you might stuck in the elevator for minutes until it reads your card, or not.
Same goes to the room, the first time you will feel you got the wrong/bad room card, but if you keep trying, one of the attempts you might get it right.
If you order another stay right after this stay, they will NOT give you another minibar treatment. Unless you check yourself out, and wait for two hours, then check yourself in again, then you can enjoy the one minibar per stay treatment.
They have restaurants in hotel, but if you just walk in, you have to wait for a seat with an empty stomach, you must do it the old fashion way making an reservation hours beforehand.
There is a construction site right in front of the hotel, blocking the way to the riverside.
The gym is small and old, you have to be lucky again to see how crowed it will be.
The swimming pool is only 1.2 meters, also, depends on how lucky you will be to see how crowed it will be.
Compliments to the cleaning staff, they are really considerate and carry the five star hotel service standards on their shoulders.
Otherwise the late night reception gentleman who renewed my room card should also receive a corporate compliment for saving the costs of another minibar for your shareholders.
