“In the middle of nowhere, dirty carpets.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2008

We had a terrible time finding this hotel. It is by the highway, which you have a great view of from the room, but not well visible driving by. There are absolutely no signs for it, even once you get off the highway, and it is in a residencial area of apartment buildings. There are no restaurants around, although if you go to the end of the street leading from the hotel towards the highway and turn right, instead left to the highway, there is a nice bakery, which was the source of our dinner and breakfast. The breakfast would have been 8 Euros pp, we paid 4 euros for the three of us. The price for an additional bed was more than half of the price for our double room, quite unreasonable. The carpets we unbelievably dhirty, full of stains. The shower curtain was so dirty, I didn't want to touch it. The staff wasn't horribly helpful. The beds were hard and the pilow was so lumpy, it felt like a ban bag of oversized beans. The room was cheap, but not worth the savings. Considering all the other places we stayed in, this was probably the worst.

  • Liked — The price for double room was great, but not with the added huge charge for additional bed for a teen.
  • Disliked — Location, highway view, dirty carpets, dirty shower, no breakfast, no restaurants near by.
