The only waiter who is friendly and who understands customer service is a very young chap with glasses. The rest are sullen men who literally do the minimum required. Did not bother eating in the inside restaurant, Rooms nice and a good size.... However i am dissapointed in this 4 star hotel...if you compare it to a 5 star place... More
