We paid approx 180 euros to stay overnight in a triple room (3rd floor) with breakfast. The staff, without exception, were wonderful: attentive, friendly, helpful. The room however, was nowhere near worth the rate charged. The walls were paper thin, to the extent that the couple next door who were talking (loudly, but still just talking) woke me up 3 times during the night and the noise from the generator outside the window went on from the early hours into the evening. There was a cable hanging over the window and the 'view' was ..... well, metal pipes and generators. The room was clean but very shabby. The wallpaper was scuffed, torn and grubby. There was a frayed, ugly TV wire-covering in dire need of replacing, a cracked socket in the bathroom and the double-bed creaked when you sat on it as if it was about to give way any second. Overall, feel of the room was 'tired' and 'worn out'. Breakfast was nothing to shout about (although again, the staff were brilliant). Little choice for the continental breakfast and stale pastries ... and no hash browns or other potato products on the cooked breakfast. It would be so easy to smarten the place up a bit - clean the mucky 'phone in the lift for a start? Overall, not worth the money and not worthy of the staff employed there. Went for my birthday, hugely disappointing experience, won't return.
