The Dann Carlton surpassed all expectations. From the moment you enter the lobby, it's old world service. Comfortable, good size rooms, great breakfast and a very helpful bilingual staff.

... Adrien talked me into heading to the street gym to work out.
So after 3 hours of sleep, having only consumed 2 pizza slices and 2 beers in the past 24 hours, I did some pull-ups, chin-ups, leg-ups, push-ups, and almost finished with some throw-ups. Naturally I decided to take a break by playing some intense 2v2 soccer with 3 locals. I was completely spent after 5 minutes, but we kept going for another half hour. I came back and went to sleep ...
