I don't mind a budget hotel but this really was the pits! On arrival the room stank of smoke, rang down to reception who couldnt move me as the hotel was full. They sent up a very obliging member of staff with an air-freshener spray (declined as they get up my nose!), the only other solution was to open the window. The window as it turned out neither opened nor closed and was permanently ajar - very noisy from the street below.
Room service (working late and no time to go out for food) was not great - they didn't have anything I wanted from their menu, but the staff were very obliging and even sent me a complimentary dessert to make up for the room.
Bed was uncomfortable, bathroom door a bit broken so I almost got entirely stuck in there!
Worse still, they've charged me for the bottle of wine which was in the room which I definitely did not touch. Still trying to resolve this. Luckily I checked my credit card statement in detail this month.
