The Angel hotel, where to begin...
We booked two rooms at this hotel.The hotel building is old; that is a fact.
Room decors were totally out dated. The armchair rests in each room were dirty, worn out and just plain disgusting to be honest. The curtains were extremely dirty and dust was visible at a distance. The bed sheets that were provide were stained with what looked like make-up.
The cushions were extremely low and no additional ones were available in the room.
I did not enjoy staying in the room as the floors were constantly vibrating. So much so, that our suitcases were making squeaking noises. The vibrations made for an unpleasant sleep. The air conditioning that was available in the room wasn't working. The rooms smelt weird, I don't know how to describe the scent as it was the first time I had ever experienced anything like it. It was unpleasant.
The bar staff was not manning the bar (in the afternoon) but was instead, enjoying a chatting session with the receptionist. I had to physically go and call the barman myself in order to get served.
This hotel is definitely not good value for money. The whole experience was unpleasant and I can safely say that I will NOT be staying there again.
