Above all, in this 21st Century, we appreciate how important it is for our guests to connect easily to the internet, so we recently installed WIFI access points on each floor. Consequently, all our guests have simultaneous access to our fast internet. Also, due to these access points, normally used in businesses to serve up to 50 users, some guests can browse websites in HD Video, catch up on Netflix while others make video calls back home and of course, it’s included in the room rate.
