    Apparently if you book a standard room you get put in a building that is not part of the actual hotel. You take the elevator to floor -1 and then walk down a long corridor to get to this other building. I was originally put on the ground floor of this building in a room directly next to an entrance. I requested to be moved and they did so but only to the room one floor above. That night there was a function of some sort going on, which was quite loud and I believe when the band took a break they decided to do so right by that entrance way and they were also very loud. Had I know I wouldn't actually be staying in the beautiful hotel shown in the photos I would have stayed at another hotel/airbnb or chosen another room. One plus is the proximity to the train station.
