Didnt honour the booking. Sent us to an awful place 2.5ks away.
We argued and argued and eventually they let us have a place in a 4 bed dorm (we'd paid for a private double). The 4 bed dorm was just part of another room for 8 people, just separated by a curtain. I've seen a few tricks on my travels but that was low.
They wouldn't give us any discount and Booking.com who we used to book the hotel wanted nothing to do with us.
They allow smoking in the whole building. If you are like me and hate the smell you will not enjoy your stay. It's noisy too as it is all open plan. Did I mention there are two bathrooms for 40+ people?
