    The hotel is in a very good location

    The service in the hotel was totally unprofessional. The service staff entered the room without nocking the door and made the apology, that he thought we are not there . We were really surprised in a negative way . In the morning nobody informed us , that we have to wait 20 minutes to get the breakfast . We were asked to wait in the waiting room , where coffee run out , there were no cups , tables were dirty . Finally at the restaurant we were waiting long time for our hot food order and they delivered the wrong one . Later at the reception the service staff said , that it happens on Sundays . In this case, why it’s not organized and communicated in a professional way? The toilets in the lobby area were out of toilet paper . When we left the hotel, no one noticed us , as the staff behind the reception desk were chatting to each other . The room price is really very high compared to the service you get .
