La llegada algo trambolica Ya que los que me atendieron, me hacían pagar dos veces porque no se aclaraban Más perdí tiempo esperando la llegada del jefe para que me lo solucionara. Eso sí, llegó y al momento me dijo que estaba todo okay!

Et skummelt sted, ulækker seng, aircondition virkede ikke, håndtaget faldt af da vi prøvede og åbne døren, man kunne ikke låse døren. Vi var der i 5 min også havde vi booket et nyt. Rigtig øv oplevelse
