Imagine that, after long working day, full of meetings etc. you would like to take a rest at the hotel and try the famous Belgian beer, before you fall asleep. You sit at the lobby bar and before there is nobody behind the bar you’re wait and wait and wait and wait, more less 20 minutes and there is still nobody, just some other customers at the nest table also without anything to drink, it’s annoying, but it can happened. This exactly happened to me and my colleague, so he was go to the reception desk ask what we should do to have a beer, there was very nice lady and told him to go to the restaurant. OK, we say and go to the restaurant… After 10 minutes of waiting the waiter came to our table and ask us for order, when we told him that we would like to have just two beers he told us that the restaurant is dedicated just for dinner and we should go to the lobby bar. That makes me little bit angry because I was really very thirsty, so I told him that we were already there and nobody was there and the lady from the reception send us to the restaurant. Waiter`s completely arrogant answer kills me totally, “yes, she told you to go to the restaurant, but you should just ask for a beer and take it to the lobby bar and not sit down here, this is restaurant just to take a dinner”. That’s something which I really can`t understand, instead of apologies he kick us out.
That’s really true story and it happened one hour ago, you can imagine how comfortable you will feel during your stay at this hotel. This is my second night from five, but at this moment I`m at my room and I`m going to search the internet (wi-fi working well here ) for another hotel close by and If I succeed, probably I will check-out tomorrow, also with two my colleagues. I really not understand why I should pay more than 1500 EUR for services like this.
Btw. The planes are very noisy also inside of my room. The sealing of the windows are probably not ideal.
