My accommodation had been booked and paid for through Travel Republic. When I was checking in, Reception wanted my credit card to cover the bill. I explained that it was paid for. She said it wasn't and took some convincing even though I had the printouts as evidence.
The same thing happened again when I went to check out.
She was giving me a single room even though I paid for a double. I said so and she agreed. But when I got to the room it was indeed a single. I went back down and she said oh did you want a double. So I got a double, but there was a funny smell and it was very tired. The bathroom in particular needed renovation.
I was only staying one night, so I thought I'd just make do.
On the plus side I did not hear any noise from the corridor or other rooms, despite the hotel being busy.
Breakfast was beautiful and plentiful. The staff had set the room up so solo travelers were at the front window with a beautiful sea view. This was very thoughtful and meant I wasn't left sitting in the middle of the room with people all around.
