For the first time in about 5 years, I paid for a room without consulting TripAdvisor. Murphy's Law - it ended badly.
I have stayed in dodgy hotels a plenty, in Rome, in Cambodia, in Far North Queensland... all the ends of the earth. None of them was bad enough that I wanted to leave: until this one.
There is nothing grand about it. The shared toilet / bathroom didn't even have a light.
I'm ok with old and clean. This was not clean.
We walked in, paid, went upstairs (four flights of steep stairs) then looked elsewhere and went back to tell them we weren't staying. Clearly used to it they offered a refund immediately.
The guy who booked us in and refunded our money was nice though: credit where it is due.More
