          Vorrei sapere se hanno migliorato qualcosa da Agosto 2015. Hanno pulito l'appiccicoso banco della reception? Passano l'aspirapolvere su quella sudicissima guida che ricopre scale e corridoi? Hanno riparato l 'ascensore? Hanno cambiato le tende delle docce tutte ammuffite? Hanno pulito i filtri dei condizionatori che sono pericolosi?? Hanno comprato biancheria decente? Il parcheggio c'e' o e' ancora millantato? Mille domande!!!
