We booked this hotel based on the positivie reviews posted on this site. It was a terrible disappointment. We are very seasoned travelers, have stayed in a wide array of lodging accommodations from 5 star hotels to hostels, but were not prepared for the horrible condition of our room at La Vigneta, which could not measure up to even the most basic youth hostel level.
The room was smelly, stuffy and unbearably hot (no AC or fan). We opened the windows to discover that it was facing the road in a section where every passing car would honk to alert any potential oncoming traffic before entering a blind curve. Needless to say, we did not get much sleep. The bathroom was filthy with mold in the shower stall and lacking such basic fixtures like a hook or rack to hang a towel. The towels were thin sheets of fabric and resembled a small table cloth. The toilet seat cover was held up with a wire contraption to prevent it from slamming shut. The room lacked a bedside/reading light and its furnishings were tired looking. The walls and ceiling showed several stains from leaks. The breakfast was very basic (one hard roll, butter and jam). The coffee was cold. We were not offerred any additional beverages. The common areas of the hotel lacked any charm and smelled of sewage emanating from the public bathroom. The WIFI internet was not working. The owner was not accommodating or friendly. We did not eat at the hotel's restaurant.
Stay away from La Vigneta.
