After checking I was given a room that was either already occupied or had not been serviced! There were unused soft drink bottles, litter and a toilet roll covering the floor and the bedclothes were left in a heap. I therefore had to lug my bag back to reception to be allocated another room. This room was clean but rather dark. However, even though there was a fixed shower head above the bath and a control dial I could not find cord, button or water flow converter to make the shower work. Although the toilet handle functioned, it was nevertheless loose. There was also a crack in the wash basin. My window was not double glazed and I could hear the constant droning of an air conditioner. Bizarrely, the plug sockets were not compatible with the plugs that I have so annoying I could not recharge my mobile phone. Moreover, some of the sockets were for round pronged plugs. My advice would be to bring a continental adapter. On the plus side, free Wi-Fi is available in the reception area and luggage can be stored after check out at 11.ooam. The hotel is centrally located and close to sites, shops and public transport. Friendly staff.
