The Wifi service is disgusting. It works only at the lobby. Once you leave the lobby to go to your room or the kitchen, it get connected. When you return to the lobby, you have to bring up the browser and login again, before you can use the wifi. I did not realise this for the first 2 days and could not use Wifi at all. I asked the counter but did not get any useful information. He just said that the Wifi service might be down. The staff is not helpful.
