The alarm went off another couple of times and then there were firemen in the corridor telling us to go back to bed. There was no fire but the firemen decided to check out the hotel's fire safety while they were there and one remarked as we passed by at 6 am that the violations were huge and the hotel should be shut down and forbidden to have customers until the violations were fixed. One violation mentioned was that the door to the roof from the escape stairwell was locked. Evidently that is not allowed.
