Overcharging

Pros: Not a lot
Cons: Not overcharging
This hotel was nice to stay and comfortable but charge way too much for services, beverages, and alcohol. Also confuse by presenting in room menu in euros but charging in lira plus tax plus gratuities. Then my bank converts again and adds more because of conversion gymnastics.
