4/10 Fair

The hotel is very remote from the center. The SPA facilities were shut, including gym and pool. I booked 6 nights stay expecting to enjoy SPA massages, pool and other facilities advertised by the hotel. However, at my check-in point I have discovered that everything is closed. One evening I did not feel well and needed some medicines to help with the pain. The hotel reception did not have first aid kit and the nearest pharmacy was within 25 min walk/10 min driving distance. I had shortened my stay to 3 nights as it was simply nothing to do and not pleasant environment to stay.
