Area above cloth hangers had not been dusted for months. Parts of wall covering were loose / had come off. Overall, rooms need an update into the 21st century.

Very nice restaurant at the front of the hotel. The lamp steak is perfect.

Upon arrival I was directed towards a single room that smelled cigarretes badly (despite my request for a non smoking room). I asked to be given another room but I was told that they were full but when I started walking towards the front door and getting ready to leave the hotel another room was immediately found to be available. The hotel was running on the automatic pilot. There was nobody and the front desk. The reception was monitored by a wireless camera and if you needed help you pressed a button and talked through a speaker.
