Not an hotel; not even B&B; a cramped room with a door directly off the street and vouchers for meagre breakfast in an unwelcoming hole round a back lane. This is a triumph of style over function: the poky room was dominated by a cast-iron 4-poster bed that left nowhere for suitcases; roughcast ceiling shed a covering of sand on bed; "mini-bar" contained a single bottle of water. Clear glass sliding door separating the bathroom required two to slide it; the afterthought blind was transparent. The "hydro massage" put out a dribble of water with adequate hot water for one shower only; I'm 6' and the mirror was too high even for me. We were entertained until 1.30am by families, dogs and motorbikes immediately outside our door; the motorbikes resumed their cacophany at 6am. When the proprietress eventually arrived to let us in she wanted two nights' payment in advance in cash, despite which we fled after only one night. Oh! The air con worked well.
