Nice hotel / Location, but poor acoustic isolation
Posted Jun 7, 2016
GOOD: The hotel is nice, in a very good location, near to ground transportation (Metro-tranvia) and most of the main atractions in the old city.
beautiful view from the terrace.
1-Very very poor acoustic isolation --> all 3 nights we stayed there, we could hear a lot of noises inside the hotel during the night, people (hotel staff I guess) dropping things really hard, conversations, people moving things on next door rooms, etc, it was very difficult to sleep.
2-The air conditioning system does not work as supposed --> first night i set it to 23 °C, and it was terribly cold, I woke up 3 times in the night to set it to 26 (cooooold as ice) and then to 28 ( hot as hell), finally it worked at a more or less confortable room temperature at 27 °C, next night same story but worked fine at 25°C and next night again, after waking up 3 times, it worked fine at 25°C, it was frustrating, I could not get any good rest.
3-Hair dryer is a joke --> My wife only could use it for short periods of 10-15 seconds, 2 or 3 times before it overheated and stop working. it was necessary to wait about 5-10 minutes for it to cool down and started to work again.
4- The bedsheets were awfully unconfortable --> incredibly rough clothes, both bedsheet and pillow covers
5-On the 3rd night at 11 pm we were awakened for someone trying to open our door (scary!) when I went to check, it was hotel staff offering pillows!!! why the hell at that time, why did not call the door
6-Many dishes broken on its edges
