En algunos momentos no había nadie presente en el establecimiento. En mi caso tuve problemas con llave electrónica (tarjeta-llave con banda magnética); como resultado, no pude entrar hasta que llamé a un número de teléfono que anuncian en la entrada. Este contratiempo me sucedió dos veces. Lo peor es que las llamadas son internacionales; por supuesto, si no tienes móvil o se agota la batería te quedas en la calle.
