          Does each accommodation have: iron, ironing board, and hair dryer? Also, what about a mini fridge? Thanks.

          No it doesn't have any of those. It has ice bucket and traditional shampoo lotion etc. The hotel does have two complementary water bottles and a small chocolate on first day of arrival.
