We stayed in a regular queen room- #23. While I recognize this hotel offers relatively good value and a lovely courtyard with a pool, there were some serious flaws with our room.
A) It was very small and squashed, and the one window looked onto a brick wall.
B) Biggest issue was the bathroom where the shower had no drainage system so water intentionally spilled right onto bathroom floor. This is a serious design flaw meaning entire bathroom had soaking floor (of old shower water!) for duration of our stay.
They provide flip flops to use in the wet bathroom but the whole experience was still a little unpleasant.
A shame as the building itself is beautiful and the courtyard peaceful. Staff were also helpful although some have very limited English.
Would not recommend unless they fix the bathroom situation.
