Stayed at this hotel Nov 14-28 09. we where in block A room 12. Room was really dull and dingy and not very big. 2 double beds though, the only positive thing about the room. 1 long brown very old chest of drawers with the brown paint bubbling and peeling off. Had to move it to get to the plug socket and it was very unstable. 1 dresser in the same colour and condtion. 1 small table plus a chair. Believe me there was not enough room for all this stuff. Lookes like a long double wardrobe but it only had one door, inside it was a single with a shelf, once again in this horrble brown paint. Pillows on bed as thick as a doorstep, very uncomfortable! 2 plug points in the room hanging off the wall. Had to move the sideboard to get to one and the bed to get to the other. The headboard was restin on the base so when we moved the base the headboard fell off. Bedside lamp not working, took 5 days of constant nagging to get them to fix it, it was a wiring problem, left us with bare wires for those 5 days. Bathroom was clean but the shower was directly in front of the window which only had a flimsy curtain covering it! Plus the toilet was near the window as well! Most of the staff seemed that they could not have cared less about anything. Hardly any one at the bar in the evening. The "entertainment team and bar staff " spent most of the time watching tele. I dont expect luxury for the price we paid but this really was the pits. Some of the other blocks looked a lot better than ours, so we could have been unlucky. Do not stay in Block A or B its depressing.
