Made the mistake of booking this place without reading reviews...I must say having read them now, I would agree with all the negative comments! It is not merely a language barrier: warmth and welcome sound the same in all languages. I too was told very firmly (and more than once!) that I was not allowed to have any guests in the room. I am a middle-aged professional and a mother...I really don't think I would be mistaken for a 'working girl' - at least I hope not! I also balked at the idea of a £10 deposit for a front door key. No towel in room, nowhere to wash hands in the WC. I had to move a piece of furniture to find an electric point so I could charge my mobile phone. When I had sufficient charge on it, I booked a room at the Ibis and left. I wasn't asked why I was checking out @ 1 hour after checking in (which is quite telling.) It felt like a halfway house or really bad student accommodation. I wasn't expecting 5-star luxury for the price, but I did expect to be able to wash and dry my hands after using a toilet, and to feel safe. Avoid, avoid, avoid. And always read reviews before booking hotel (or guest house) rooms!!
