I stayed for two nights and had an excellent stay. The room was spacious and comfortable and staff was very helpful with questions. I did have a few issues with the safe in the room and needed help from staff a few times with it.

Thanks for your comments.the hotel in low season is the process of remodeling the rooms which includes new mattress. as a rule when the clients ask for a blanket a thin one is all that is required due to Samara is hot but we do have thick one and if ask after the thin one was given to you we would of gave a thicker one,.all room are with AC and we do not charge an extra $10.00 for the AC here you might be thinking of another hotel. For the breakfast we will look into this and make changes as needed. if you would of let the front desk staff know of these comment we would of took steps to correct these while you was here.
