I had high hopes that were quickly dashed. Art is one thing faded glory is another. Towels and bedspread that you are allowed to use (you have to remove the top one because it comes from Belgium) have tattered edges and permanent stains. Breakfast is cold cereal and yogurt and something called tropicana that pretends to be orange juice. Thank heavens for smart phone because wi-fi is only accessible during the hours your "host" is awake- comes on in the am goes off at her bedtime. You are the only "guest" so you cater to your host she does not accommodate you. With 5 minutes notice she dragged a plumber through "my" room before I was dressed and noisy yard work started sunday morning with no notice. Rooms are not cleaned, no beds are made and I had to point out twice in the same day that my hallway bathroom needed toilet paper. There are only face mirrors so you will never know how you look when you walk out the door though you can look at photographs of how many other people look. Unless you get a huge bargain it is not worth what I paid.
