Nachtrag: Unsere Moppeds wurden bestohlen, so nahm man einen Scottoiler Lube Tube mit, der in einer Lenkertasche untergebracht war! Wofuer man den hier auch immer gebrauchen kann wissen wir nicht. Das Hotelpersonal empfanden wir als nicht kooperativ (ausser 1 Person), bei der Suche nach einem sicheren Parkplatz fuer die Motorraeder, besonders der Manager stach mit seiner schlechten Laune hervor!!!
Ungefaehr so: : - (
Trotz alledem erstklassiger Zimmerservice!!
Somebody stole our Lube Tube of the Scottoiler from our bike, for what do they use it?? Anyway, the guys from the hotel were not very helpful to look for a safe parking, except 1 guy. The manager was always looking like that: : - (
Nevertheless, an excellent room service!!

But it is still not cheap!!!
Close to the Freezone of the airport.
