I must admit that I let my boyfriend to book the hotel this time and when we arrived it was a nice surprise. The room was very cheap what was definitely convenient. I didn’t read any reviews, especially here, and this was my big mistake. It’s all true what people write here. Bathroom is small, toilet shared with shower, but that’s ok for the price. Indeed there is a charge for everyday of 4E, air tax or however it is call. All the hotels do that. Wi-fi is not great; the room is just very basic. It was fine for me as it was only for one night.
The worst though was the next day. I got home without any problems; however, I had this itchy spots on my skin. The next day when I woke up, half of my face grew up due to the bites; one hand was doubled sized due to the bites and the other hand only one finger fortunately grew bigger. I have been severely bitten during the night. I had to go to the doctor and stayed for 3 days at home. The pain was horrible, the appearance even worse. My all skin got really red.
I am a budget traveler but I must admit never before something like that happened to me. If you decide to stay in this place, prepare some insects spray or something to protect you!
And yes, it’s close to the center, the only convenient thing about this place. Around the corner is a nice place to have a breakfast so I cannot say how it is in the hotel, but def overprized (they want 5 E per person).
