We booked a room for 3 nights even after reading the negative reviews. We checked in, which was easy and pleasant enough, and shown to a twin room on the 2nd floor away from the expected noise, with views of the church. But the room had no shower, only a bath - difficult for hairwashing, especially when you have long hair!
We were moved immediately and without any bother to the floor below (with shower, and a lovely view of the fire escape and a brick wall), but one of the beds hadn't been changed, and the sheets had the remains of someone's fake tan on them!
The wall under the window was black, there were cobwebs round the frame and the general impression was of dirt and neglect.
Then when my friend went to advise them we were leaving, I noticed that the toilet had a bad leak, and the floor was swimming in water.
A refund was given without any problem, apart from the initial deposit, which should follow, and apologies were made, but we were glad to get away. It may have been ok for one night at a push, but not for the 3 day break we planned. Just too dirty and neglected.
