Windows were not isolating from the cold weather outside.


It would have been nice if the website had said that no blankets or towels were provided because it was a cold night and a hot shower would have been appreciated. My partner used the sheet provided to dry himself in the morning after his shower.


Although I was able to get a free room upgrade, there was no pillow in the room. At check in I wasn't told that there are no blankets or towels in the room and you have to hire one, or that you need the coupon from reception to access the free WiFi. There was no toilet paper or soap in the toilet I went into.
