Hotel South is fairly small and seems to comprise just a few members of staff. The reception is never manned, one is left to their own devices and just has to make a call if anything is needed.
I was here for business for just under a week, and was working until late at night every day. The walls in this hotel are ridiculously thin. As far as I could ascertain, there was a cavalry regiment practicing drill on horseback on the floor above me all night. From my room I could count the occupants of the other rooms on the corridor as I could hear them snoring.
A very annoying buzzing noise intermittently sounded from above each door on the corridor, which is something to do with the centralised air conditioning activating. Extremely poor sleep quality endued.
The cleaners started at around 8pm with as much noise as possible as they came cleaning the corridor (maybe 5 people had walked down it in the 24 hours since it was last cleaned)
and knocking on my door at half 9-10am to do my room.
There's a breakfast room downstairs, but 8 euros is the charge and unfortunately it only amounts to a selection of pastries etc, juices, a bit of cold ham and cheese, and is nowhere near worth this amount.
There's no other restaurant facility at all, one must venture out on foot to seek eateries, of which there are very very few.
A pond area is located behind the hotel, which I thought would be nice to sit by on sunny afternoons before going to work, but unfortunately the grass surrounding the pond is just covered in dog dirt, and there's a serious infestation of ants. The only seating available was some plastic upright seats stacked in the corner, but one still has to spend time flicking off the ants that eventually find you.
The staff were absolutely wonderful to give them credit, very enthusiastic and personable, and I have no doubt that they would do anything in their power to solve a guest's problem, their shuttle service to the airport was exemplary.
This hotel is now closed for a period of refurbishment, and I will be interested to see if it improves. Could well be a much better experience to stay there in a month from now, really hope they thicken the walls!
