Air-conditioning did not work properly, they tried to fix twice, but failed. Very friendly and professional staff, especially Calzhar. 👍 No ice in the Level lounge, so had to have warm drinks one day.

Terrible service!!! Second time I have stayed her (not by my choice) and this is worst than the last. I arrived in the morning and was told - without looking - that check in is at 3 pm . Then my male colleague walked in - they couldnt find his reservation because they had his first name and last name reversed! They fixed the error and gave him a room immediately!. They kept me waiting all day and did not even check if there was room!!! Room service is a joke - the app does not work - This is the second time out of 2 that it didnt work!!! Finally they sent someone to give me a menu - terrible selection!! I have stayed here only because the conference I attended uses the hotel for their guests - but it is NOT a 4-star hotel.
