I stayed 2 nights in this hotel in June 2009. My room was at the very top of the tower. It was hard to climb all of those stairs after a day of sights. The room was small, as I expected. What I did not expect was the room's relative uncleanliness. The shower had random hairs in it. I could tell that the shower was probably never cleaned. The foot of the bed had sand in it, which was quite bizarre. Air conditioning was advertised, yet it was turned off and could only be turned on by the front desk. Here is the catch: the desk person leaves at 6:00PM and locks the doors. So, I had no way of turning on the air. Fortunately, I was so high up that mosquitoes were not a problem. The owner was a bit crazy and did not offer to make breakfast on the second day of my stay. Luckily she called a taxi for me to get to the train station. The hotel was out of the way and I got lost and found myself walking to the town wall next to some random hospital. Not a good use of 85 Euros a night.
