I actually wanted to not give them a rating, but if i read such as the Ana praised must i do it anyway. Were the first week of november to 4 and last time in Ana. All the write here as well there were probably never in an other hotel in the world. Only times to the overall picture of the hotels. Well, it was 25 years old but totally in need of renovation. Rooms with carpeted floors, garden area was very neglected. The food. The breakfast everywhere cats on the covered tables cleaning disgusting. Breakfast selection small two types ... of käsee, three sorts of sausage every day. Dinner no choice each day cockerel and five same salads. Staff gives itself trouble up to reception (arrogant).
