  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness

El staff tiene un servicio excelente, Joselo es excelente. Pero la habitación tenía un mal olor a cloaca y pensé que sería solo la habitación, pero al dirigirme al baño tenía el mismo olor y los pasillos también. Es algo muy desagradable que deberían de tener en cuenta
