Meh. Not a terrible place, but certainly the advertising on booking websites is not justified, nor is the price. This is not a hotel, it is a fairly low-grade B&B.

I was received by a guy wearing pijamas at 3PM; the room had no toillete (they advertise en suite luxury rooms!!!); terrible english! Although the employee was not rude, it seemed that he was there by accident. It was probably the worst hotel I had ever stayed in my life. Oh, and I don't think they change the sheets for...
