    Very simple questions: 1. Is Holiday Inn realy "tired" as it was written by one guy. Holiday Inn Ratingen (Dusseldorf) is "tired", but there were excellent sauna and cousine. What's in DAR is the best? 2. Is it possible to book room for smoking travellers? 3. Is it possible to arrange tours from hotel or I should look for agents around?
