I was looking forward to staying here after reading such great reviews from others. We booked the $18 a night room yesterday on booking.com, where it actually showed that there was one room left. We entered our credit card info, and received a confirmation. So, needless to say, after a very long bus ride to p.p. we were very upset to discover that the room we had booked actually wasn't available, but we could get the $28 a night room. The staff told us that the cheaper rooms had been all full since ten days ago. So why did booking.com say there was an available room?? I told them I wasn't paying $28 a night for a room, so they said ok, we have a room for you, but you have to pay first. They must think we are idiots.. I told them no, we would like to see it first. So, the man took us across the street to a smelly restaurant that leads up to rooms up above. The lady at this place (lyons hotel) showed us the room and told us $15 a night. At this point, we were so exhausted, we took it, despite the awful condition this hotel is in.
What's even worse is that after the lady showed us and we accepted, the man downstairs still tried duping us for $18, when we had just been told the real price!
So, all in all, I cannot judge this guesthouse on anything except service, but that is enough for me to never return, and enough for me to tell others to steer clear so you don't find yourself in the attic of a restaurant down the street.
