We were booked in for four nights, but after 30 minutes we decided we couldn't stay even one night. The room was below street level and it was tiny, like a cell, with a 2ft square window looking onto a corrugated tin roof, and consequently very dim. The room was freezing, and we could not get the heating unit to work. It was an air conditioning unit which, even after asking the receptionist to show us how it worked, still only blew out cold air. It made a fearful racket and I would not have been able to sleep with the noise. There was only a small recess for hanging clothes and a couple of hangers, and the two tiny three-drawer knee-high units for all our clothes were very coggly and the drawers would not open. One of the two chairs was broken. The bathroom stank with damp and was very spartanly equipped. The back door to the car park was open to all, with no locks or security. The car park, once you were able to find the access to it, was on a steep hill, off a very fast main road. It had four very tight spaces, not easy to reverse into or out of on a steep hill. Access was via a busy and fast dual-carriageway road, with a dumper truck blocking visibility at the entrance. The breakfast area was as dim and dark as the bedroom with black stone benches to sit on and stone tables to eat off. The only good thing about this hotel was that we were not charged, thanks to Booking.com's intervention, otherwise we would have had to pay a night, even though we did not stay. We went for a meal that night quite near this hotel. Next door, or rather above the bedrooms was a busy vodka bar, and opposite what looked like a night club. Apart from the noise from inside the bar, there were so many people hanging around outside, with drinks in hand and smoking. You would have had to run the gauntlet of that lot to get in the hotel's front door.
