My absolute worst hotel experience ever!!!

This hotel is described (by themselves) as a five star hotel or in here qualifies as a four star hotel, but it’s definitely NOT. In terms of the services offered I would give this hotel three stars only. Despite missing the obvious amenities such as bath robe and slippers on demand or cosmetic products (e.g. shower cap, nail file, cotton swabs), tray of a large scale in the bathroom. This hotel did not even offer food and beverage via room service at all!! Instead you were offered a snack at their smoked in, no windows, depressing and bad smelling sports bar. Their amenities kit was comprised by two hand towels and a bar of soap. Please note that the shower area or in our case the bathtub area had no lightning and was very dark. The decor was old and outdated, the room was awful and our bed (a double bed) was made up with a single bed sheet that didn’t cover the entire bed. The food was ok for buffet food but they served the same food EVERY DAY and for the “better” restaurants you needed reservations which was not easy to get. For a huge hotel of almost 600 rooms that by the way were fullybooked you can imagine the difficulties in getting reservations on the two “à la carte-restaurants on the property. After checking in we were welcomed by drunken hotel guests wondering around in the lobby and riding elevators in their bikinis/bath shorts, but note that some had the decency to cover up in a beach towel. This was not a one off thing since we had the same view almost every time we passed the lobby or was heading up to our room after a day way from the hotel. We had booked six nights at this hotel but checked out after only three nights since we could not take it anymore. We actually ended up paying almost the same amount just to get out of this place. You probably get what you play for at this hotel but for 360 dollars a night that is a huge waste of you money. If the hotel was profiled as an ok three star hotel for MAXIMUM 200 dollars a night then that is just fine. And if you enjoy as loud, crowded, juts ok food, no room service and filled with drunken people then this is the hotel for YOU!
