Thankfully it was only two days and was thus bearable. Unfortunately, the staff is incompetent particularly the manager who found it appropriate to be rude to his own guests by being ironic, talking in a bad manner and implying that we were lying to him for the booking. We booked a sea view studio through a website and not only did we not receive a sea view studio, we received a lousy attitude, no attempt to rectify the situation was made and on top of that the toilet was leaking. In addition, I later realised that the studio we received was the worst in the building, since I saw a lot of the other studios, but the receptionist insisted she gave us the best studio available.
Regarding the bathroom, we realised it smelled very bad the moment we entered the room but we ignored it for a while as it had just been cleaned and the floor was still wet. The smell did not go away and we were forced to buy an air freshener while we also realised that the toilet was leaking onto the floor tiles. When we brought it to the attention of the staff, they realised that there was a problem with the pipes which is no surprise since it was so aged. Unfortunately they could not fix it until the next day because it required a lot of work but we were checking out anyway, thankfully. It was disgusting and this made the experience inhabitable.
Finally, the following issues came to my attention during our stay. The internal renovation must have been done superficially. The curtains let a lot of light in while the glass sliding door would not seal on one side so it was left open leaving our belongings exposed. The hairdryer pulls in the hair as it is old and leaves a burnt smell behind. The towels were worn away with age and felt rough. The breakfast seemed good at a first glance but do not let it fool you. The cheese was off and the jams tasted funny, as though they were expired.
