8/10 Very good

La chica que estuvo por el turno de la noche, nos dio una tarifa para extender 1 noche en la misma habitación y a la mañana siguiente, nos dijo que era otra. Deberían de entrenar al personal sobre la información de tarifas. Por otra parte, punto positivo: para el chico recepcionista que me recibió, siempre atento y servicial, y atendió a nuestras solicitudes de manera eficaz.
