Dear hostie, We appreciated your review, a feedback coming from an expert traveler is always welcomed, but unfortunately I cannot agree some parts of what you sad. We respect every opinion but a subjective feeling remains subjective, all our deluxe rooms are very quiet. You booked a beautiful deluxe room requesting a balcony without view, we provided one of our...
