Where to start?! Their website is WONDERFUL and sold me to pay €159 a night. Well, had I been shown the room we were given, I would not have paid €15 to stay there. It was awful, the worst hotel room I have ever had the misfortune to see never mind have to sleep in. The "large" bed was so small I thought there must be another one somewhere lurking. The ceiling was cracked and yellow and the walls were orange YES burnt orange (take a look at the rooms you see on the website). We had to go outside thru a courtyard and up a very narrow staircase to our room (3). Heating did not work. Room resembled a prison cell. Only 1 UK TV channel and the volume was so low on it you could not hear it. The FREE INTERNET you get with the deal did not work once while we were there (there was a laminated sheet telling people this at reception so I feel this is a common occurance). Then we come to FREE BREAKFAST. Well what can I say? If you are still feeling the need to book this hotel, book without breakfast and go to one of the many local cafes. The tables are not cleared, no glasses, no pastries left (at 9am) it was just dire. Get your cup of coffee and get out! We changed rooms (to 1) after the first night (we were shown 50 - would recommend against that too) which was maringally better. As in it had wallpaper and looked bright but to be honest the damage had been done thinking it was acceptable to put anyone in room 3. To try and find some positives - the reception staff were attentive and the location is wonderful. Loads of fab shops on the street.
