                We made a booking 10 days before my stay. Once we arrived a substandard room was given to us. The room on a 1 floor , a window was by a roof that was under construction : dirty , full of building materials and bad smell. Since the hotel has no aircondition , to keep normal temperature the window should have been opened what was not possible due to the above mentioned repair of the roof. After short discussion at the reception we were offered very good room. At the hotel of this class such situation should not have happened.
