Arrived at this central hotel & was shown to a room on the 2nd floor & from that point it was sadly downhill.
Dealing with the good points first, the small room was clean, the beds were OK (1 double & 1 single), the breakfast was just about adequate (tea, orange juice, scrambled eggs & toast) & a modern TV but no English Lanaguage news programme..
Problems started with the Venetian blind - it took 5 mins to lower - we needed some privacy; I am afraid it was long past its "sell by date". My other half decided to have a shower, although it was a small area he managed but the water drained very slowly & he had to step out onto the floor in front of the toilet - no bath mat - water all over the floor! I asked reception for a bath mat & hand towels & was told that they did not supply them. However a well used towel was produced as a makeshift bath mat.
Problems of security concerned us, the door lock was insecure & to suggest that a safe was available was a joke. We had been warned that the air con was a little noisy - I have to say the noise was worst than that of sitting over the engines of a jumbo jet! No ceiling fan.
We were already considering moving hotels for the remainder 3 nights - when the toilet had problems
Enough was enough, we visted the Tourist Board, found a very pleasant hotel near by & moved on. Enough said
