Staff not helpful, except for day 1. Germans the other days were not at all cooperative. Bad luggage 'service'. I was told I could leave my bag after check-out. But it was just in the reception area, behind glass where everyone could see it. To pick it up, there was NO security at all. ANYONE who walks in, sees the bags through the window. Just say at reception: I pick up my back.. and just take ANY bag.. It would feel safer to get a small ticket/paper to ensure nobody else takes the wrong bag.
