I accompanied my husband who was on a business trip. Before going, I read the reviews here but though it did not matter much as we were only going for 4 days. I was wrong!!!
Asked for a smoking room with a double bed- Got Non smoking with 2 separate single beds. One of which had dirty sheets (found 2 very long black hairs and a bit of dirty nail on one) I did not bother complaining as I did not want an argument (after some of the reviews here). No outside pool or terrace to sunbathe, have a coffee etc, on a main smelly road, and with awful rude staff. Two were arguing about us after we ordered a cheese omollette and they gave us a tuna sandwich, When were returned it, the staff started slagging us off in front of us! As I understand and speak a bit of spanish (I'm originaly from Portugal), I approached them and said in Spanish that I heard and understood all that was said about us,therefore, we did not want to eat there any more! Their face was a picture! All they said was, "Oh, we didnt know you spoke spanish!" and then they walked off in silence!
The food is rubish and you never know which restaurant they are serving it. Noboby tells you either! I was in room 205 and there is a restaurant a few doors down. If breakfast was being served there, at 7am, the noise you could hear in your room resembled being in a zoo.
If you want somewhere just to lay down after spending the day elsewhere, not eat there, not need to ask the staff anything and be near a tube, then the hotel is OK. Otherwise, you will be bored stiff, hungry, insulted and skint.
To finish, I wanted a coffee after dinner. Their bars were all shut! Heaven knows why. Had to go out at 9:30 (evening meals start at 8.30 pm) only to be harrassed and intimidated by tramps for money.
I have never written a review but as I read the reviews on this site before chosing an hotel, I felt I had to give something back and therefore, here is my honest opinion. Out of about 50 hotels I have stayed in, this is the only one I would refuse to stay in again. The thing is, I did not choose it as it was booked by the company my husband works for. And they will be hearing of this.
