2/10 Poor

Very overcrowded, understaffed and all around poorly maintained. We were checked in late(4pm) after arriving early and spending the day out. Breakfast was poor and overcrowded. Room was never cleaned despite us asking for it. Very bad service levels - after paying 400 euros a night for a basic room.
