We were a little disconcerted when we arrived in Sw. Sebastiana, it looked very run down with graffiti covering all the buildings. When we got to the Angel House it was all locked up and nobody answered the bell. Luckily we had an internet connection and sent them an email and within 15 minutes someone was there. You have to arrange a check in time beforehand or ring them when you arrive but we never received our instructions about this from the hotel, presumably because we had booked through an agency who didnt supply the hotel with our contact details and did not pass on to us the email the hotel sent to them. This was not the fault of the hotel and we will take it up with the agency we booked with.
Don't take any notice of the outside, once the door to the hotel is open, it is a total transformation! There is a communal kitchen/eating area and a nice breakfast is laid out every morning. There is coffee and an assortment of teas for you to help yourself from at any time. Also biscuits and a small quantity of fruit is always available.
Our room was really comfortable with a large bed with a canopy and a single bed. The pillows were very small, more like scatter cushions but we were provided with more when we asked.
There was however a big problem in our bathroom. Despite on our arrival the window being open and the fan being on (its been set to never go off), there is a very bad drain odour. The cause of the problem was quickly apparent when we showered - the shower drain is blocked and the entire room floods. not pleasant at all. I cannot understand why this problem is not addressed, it must be clear to however cleans the shower and the floor tiles outside the shower are already loose and lifting because of the water. For sure it will only get worse and could potentially get very much worse!
So, would we stay again? Yes, but only provided the drains problem is fixed.
