    Hi, I made reservation in this hotel and in booking form I asked the hotel about transport from airport to hotel. Because I haven't received the answer, i wrote directly to their email, but still no respond. I also tried their number several times, but no one is ever answering. When I tried to reach the hotel via facebook, they gave me the emails address, when i would suppose to receive the answer. But of course i haven't. My card has already been charged and I'm starting to worry about the hotel being so unreachable. Does anyone have an idea how to get in touch with hotel? Thank you.
