“To be avoided at all costs!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2008

Dear all,

I stayed at this hotel back in April with some friends. We were not fussy on the hotel itself, as we booked at the last minute and really, we wanted to enjoy the football match palying at the time.

Unfortunately the hotel ruined it all! It looked good on the website and there was no other option as everywherelse was fully booked. We called the property directly and got told to give our C/C setails to guaranty the booking and we would pay upon arrival.

The thing is, that the hotel was basic, OK fine, but we got the worst welcome ever, to start!! They couldn't find our booking, we explain that we called and left our C/C number, they say they never do that and rooms must be paid in cash and of course at a different price from what was advised over the telephone. Well, we though our fault for not being better organized. However, if that was the only issue, I would passed the hassle putting a review really...Rooms had nothing special and to be honest, they were crapy! We probably got given the worst accommodation in the hotel due to the issue at check in.

I will pass the other misadventures of leaking tap, brocken door locks, dity towels, suspiscious bed linen and all, during our stay.
The best is always for the end, when we got told that we had to pay (again!) for some city tax and TVA, we just refused!! There was no way they'd charge us anymore for this [----]-hole! And we left, just like that... But wait, what a surprise when a couple of weeks later I checked my bank statement and saw some 180 euros with reference "Hotel St Petrus"!! Then i got really upset and called the hotel; same story again, they didn't know us and hanged up on me. One day later I called again. This time they seem to have forgoten their English! So my last resort is to warn other people not to go to that hotel. Those people are dishonest and perverted, being in charge of a hotel is not their field.
