Cons: Label (with the name of a hotel) on it's roof is simply white without letters. It was very hard to find it. Nobody waited us in the evening on the reception. We took keys ourself. The room was for non-smokers (# 4), but the smell was like it was a smoking room in the past. Water in shower in the morning was very cold. The swimming pool is without water (does not work). Very simple hotel... looks like motel.
Cons: everything is out of date e.g. furniture and equipment -- the 70s come back! The swimming pool was out of order (without water)
Pros: we got a rather new appartment with 2 bedrooms instead of 2 hotel rooms.
