We arrived, as previously arranged, around 10.30pm due to late flight time. The door opens in response to door entry bell. Struggled into minute lift (one of us had to walk because of luggage) up to first floor. We were greeted by a dishevelled male in a narrow hall which doubled as reception. We had requested a courtyard room but were informed that the only room available was the one next to reception. The door was opened by the male to reveal twin beds with clumsily made beds with crumpled pillowcases looking as though they had just been vacated. It was at this point I remembered the review posted regarding bed bugs!! We expressed total dissatisfaction with the accommodation and asked if he had a better room with fresh linen on the beds. He became extremely agitated asking "What do you expect for this price?". Clean beds for one!
"Well you can leave, LEAVE, NOW IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT". We were totally shocked and asked him to leave us for a minute whilst we gathered ourselves. We decided there was no way we could sleep in the beds and left. The only way we could contact him was ringing the outside bell again. When he eventually responded my sister climbed back upstairs to give him the keys to find him in worse temper than before. We fled into the night at almost 11.30 to have to find alternative accommodation which we did after nearly an hour of dragging our luggage through the streets. We preferred to do that than spend a night in this psycho-like hotel. I am still trying to get a refund on my credit card because I was charged for one night. Venere Hotels were not able to assist. Avoid this hotel at all costs.
