After having our chosen hotel double book us we were then booked into the King Solomon Hotel where we were advised it was a 3 star hotel (Its actually not rated!)
Our booking was accepted online but when we arrived we had to wait 15mins whilst the receptionist (in his words) juggled other guests around to accommodate us. We were then shown to our "Family Room" by his colleague (or rather we followed a foreign male whilst he had a conversation on his mobile whilst grunting & pointing now & then at us!), after climbing 3 flights of stairs & walking down several twisting/turning corridors we arrived in our attic room!
There was a double sofa bed & another double bed (very thin mattress on 2 single metal frames pushed together!) The bulbs were bare. There were 2 windows one which had curtains another (velux) window just had nets stapled to it, & as it faced another building whose lights were on 24/7 we asked if they could put a curtain up for us to be nastily shoe shoed away by the manager! We improvised & made our own curtains out of the bed runners lol.
The rooms were clean & the bedding was very clean. Our bathroom had recently been refurbished & was lovely so no complaints there.
We were the only english customers in a hotel of 90+ rooms, all the other guests were Jewish as this is predominantly a Jewish area.
Breakfast was a buffet of Tuna, Sweetcorn & Mayo / Egg & Mayo / Boiled Eggs / Sliced Tomatoes, Cucumber / Bagels, butter & Jam / Cereal. Fruit Juice & Hot Drinks.
The staff watched over your every move making breakfast very uncomfortable to say the least, they never smiled or said hello/goodbye.
The stairs leading up to our room stunk of damp & a notice on the inside of our door mentioned a safe in our room (which we never had)!
Overall a not so pleasant experience so wont be going back there again!!!!
