"There was an outdoor jazz festival at the entrance to the hotel and we couldn't even get past the crowds with our luggage. It was far too noisy even with the windows closed until 2:00 am and after the music stopped there was the noise of clearing up until around 5:00 am. The restaurant was closed and was only offering fast food for dinner. I complained to reception, but the manager was not available until Monday. They subtracted the price of the breakfast from my account, but I said it was not sufficient. They did not deliver the goods (good night's sleep and decent food). The staff were reasonably helpful under the circumstances considering the hordes of people around the hotel. All in all a terrible experience. Someone should have warned us, before accepting the booking, about this festival, as if I had known I would not have booked it."
