The location of this hotel is fantastic. (best thing it has to offer)
Unfortunately for me I hastily booked this hotel through another web site that had no reviews, big mistake!
You can pay extra for a room that over looks the canel, but don't bother as once you see the room you will only want to be in there as little as possible. There are nice seats under a tree right out the front on the canel anyway.
Reception staff ( if you can find any) friendly and speak English. The shower was very hot and the actual bed comfortable. The room was clean and had good storage.
The room very small with old furnishings (not antiques, just shabby). The bathroom tiny, just sitting on the toilet you bang into the shower screen. No hooks for used towels to hang. No shelf for toiletries, the only place to put my toiletry bag was on the closed toilet seat. The shower recess had cracked tiles, most tiles had very mouldy grout.
Our room was not made up for the second night of our stay. Lucky for us there was 4 towels in room when we arrived. We needed the extras as the others still wet due to not having any where to hang.
The pillows hard and lumpy. I think the sheets were clean, but very old, thin and even worn to a small hole in some places. Fridge in room but not working. No cups to have a drink of water.
The whole decor of hotel very shabby. Free wi-fi available, but only in reception, which is also breakfast room and the tv room. It constantly stank of cigar / cigarette smoke. Reception hours are 7:00-9:00am & 7:00-9:00pm. There is a phone on desk to call but no one comes, just tell you to come back 7:00pm.
I did not like it here and would not recommend. I am sure that you could find much better for the same money.
