The service is directly proportional to the level of the tip you give, you gave a good tip and you will get good service. You didn't tip - wait to be served.

10/10 Exceptional

Because of the staff....
The staff work the best you could ask for, I would rate them 12 out of 10. Fulfill every dream. Try to fill everything. They prepared special dishes for me. 2 small things that prevent it from being 100: hot water in the shower :-(, and serving Pepsi :-) Other than that, a perfect hotel. Convenient location. A note to the - although it says an upgrade to the rooms - this has never been implemented in any hotel....
