Apalling hotel. Extra small rooms and if you ask for twin beds you must be able to climb over one of the beds to gain entry to the dirty toilet.
That is if you at first make it past the reception area where the receptionist will challenge both your printed e-mail confirmation for a room and the one you show her on a computer. Finally we gained entry to a room with a balcony. A balcony where the floor was covered in 1cm of pigeon poo. And some other guests garbage. The chicken fence that covered the front of the building to keep pigeons out was not doing its job very well. And didnt help the view much either.
If this was a cheap hotel that didnt make any excuses about its status I would happily stay there. But when it isnt cheap, and they try to sell it of as some sort of luxury stay and you´re treated like you should be happy to even get to stay there, thats when I take offence.
The painter in the corridor was nice enough though.
Please, for your sake and your travelling companions. Look further. Pay more and get more somewhere completly else.
