We booked a 1 bedroom apartment for 2 nights. Price was only 35 euros/ night so didnt expect much at all. All we actually needed and wanted was a basic and clean room where we could take a shower, sleep, and browse the internet occasionally for information. We didn't even get that.
Negatives: First of all, it had the tiniest tv I have ever seen. I'm pretty sure my laptop has a bigger screen. I don't watch tv so didn't care personally, but just thought I would mention it for those of you reading who might be interested. When I tried to put a bottle of water in the fridge, I noticed the fridge had not even been turned on. When I did plug it in, the light wasn't working. Did not bother to even try anything else in the kitchen. Our bedroom had paint pealing off the walls, a stained duvet (although sheets were clean) so slept without the duvet. Dead bugs were literally hanging off the walls. The bathroom walls were black, mouldy, and smelly, and on the second night upon arriving back to the apartment late at night, we were greeted by cockroaches roaming around the kitchen counters. Not just one, many. We managed to kill 3, the rest ran back into their hiding place. Bare in mind, we had no food at all in the apartment, and used it only for sleeping and showering. The funny thing is when we tried to check in before 12, we were told we had arrived early, and that they needed time to clean our room. We had no problem with this and came back at around 3pm to check in. If this is what they call a clean room, I would hate to see what a dirty room looks like.
Positives: Nice pool area, and well kept garden. Newish furniture in the bedroom which to be honest I found totally bizare. Its almost like they thought by adding a new bed, it would make up for the fact that the apartment itself was in shambles. Well priced internet (though only 256 kb speed), no problems with hot water, nice gym too, and on a main road. Very nice bakery right across the road. Other than that, nothing else positive to say really. When the hotel manager asked me if I managed to connect to the internet, I told him yes, but that the speed wasn't great. He then told me that the speed was fine, and that I probably had a bad wifi card. What a load of nonsense. I ran a speed test (www.speedtest.net/) in various parts of the hotel where I could get better signal hoping to get better speed, it was 256 kb everywhere, even in the hotel lobby where the signal was strongest. Thats basically dial up speed, and probably why its priced 5 euros for 24 hours. I wasn't expect super fast internet for that price, but to advertise that you provide internet at additional charge and then deliver a 256 kb connection is a bit of a joke in 2012 and I really didn't appreciate him trying to convince me that my 1300 euro business laptop has a dodgy wifi card.
I would never stay there again, nore would I recommend it to anyone. Maybe we were put in the worst room in the hotel because of the "good deal" we got, but even so, you would expect them to get the basics right and they really didn't even do that. My only regret is that I didn't take photos to share with you all.
