    Yes there are hair dyers. I don't remember a gym, but great trips up into the hills for great views! Ask the servers in the restaurant. The access is on the left side of hotel.

    I did. It was a fine hotel with very good food, clean and comfortable. Should not be judged by what Americans are used to at home. It's not a large new standardized chain.
