HI Germana, So sorry for your bad experience with us, We have a free Wifi code in the book next to the TV and other information. We did notice that the air conditioning sound from the Restaurant is a bit noisy; however, we are required someone to upgrade our system. Hopefully it will be fixed soon as possible. We apologize and hope you give us chance to show you our improvement in the future. Best regards
