    Good

    My first impression was that Abba Castilla Plaza was luxurious. The lobby was pristine and beautiful. The elevators were timely, the room was not difficult to find, and the beds were decent. It was worth $69 dollars, but I wouldn't have paid more. I really enjoyed the squeezable shampoo and shower gel in the bathroom, it is much nicer than tiny little bottles that stay in a landfill forever.

    I have a list of grievances, starting with the reception desk. I spent 15 min waiting to check in to my room when there were two people at the desk. Helping one person at a time. I don't know why it takes two people to check one person in, but I found this redundancy irritating. Moreover, the receptionist did not tell me that an internet password would be required to log on, and I had to discover this in my room. When I called down to the reception desk to get this information they demanded that I return to them so they could give it to me personally. If I were perhaps less tired at the time, this wouldn't have made me so angry. However, my patience for stupidity and redundancy was low by this point and I found this irritating. In addition, the room service went to the wrong room, and I found the receptionist at check-out equally unpleasant/unhelpful. Given that most people pay more to stay at this hotel, I think it is worth knowing that the amenities are nice and clean, but the staff seem unfriendly and unwilling to help their clients get comfortable. I will choose to spend my money elsewhere in the future.

    Fabulous

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice.

    For the casual tourist it is far from the places you want to go to. However close proximity to Metro compensates partly for that. More suited for the business traveler. For a four star hotel lack of tea/coffee service in the room is felt. It is nice to be able to have a cup of coffee in the morning. The toilet in our room stopped working in the middle of the night. When we contacted the staff we were told that someone will come by after 9 am. That was totally unacceptable as that's something you can not wait for. The staff did not offer to move us to another room. We in fact had to insist on that option. The WI-FI is only available in the lobby area which is not very clear in the hotel description.

    Excellent location, clean and tidy facility.

    Bored and unpolite staff. I arrived at a conference with my collague but my room was exteremly hot, air conditioning was not norking. First the reception refused to change my room claiming they are full. I was sent back to my room and recommended to return in the morning when the maintenance guy will be back. Certainly I became very furious then he surprisingly found a room so I could swap room....it was smoking room though (with ugly old stink of smoke..) but I was to tired to complain further. The reception guy in charge on 11/12 May overnight showed unacceptable behaviour, he communicated in such a rude and unpolite manner that I never experienced in any other 4star hotel in the world. Not to mention that no compensation was offered for the midnight hassle so I left Abba Castilla plaza with a bad feeling and will not recommend to my colleagues.
