If you have viewed the other reviews and still go ahead and book this place, you'll get what you deserve, and believe me, it's not much that you'll get. I booked this with a friend in late September and the problems started before one could even get through the door....which took some doing with an absentee operator. If you don't know what "bait and switch" means, you soon will. There were phoney problems with the booking availability, all designed to entice you to book direct and bypass the booking agency.Then the problems began...maybe a place off premises.....or if you don't like that idea, maybe a bigger room on site for a fistful of Euro more than your original booking. This operators motivation seems to be to maximize income and minimize expenses. Take the continental breakfast. You will be hard pressed to recognize it as anything from a continent on this earth. Every item is portion controlled......self served all right, and whisked out of sight when the operator thinks you have had your share. Count yourself lucky if you find coffee and juice. Don't bother complaining...despite the B&B type of promotion, you will be promptly reminded that this is a guest house, so find the door or find your wallet. If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to stay here, do yourself a favour while waiting for someone to answer the door.....go buy some towels and soap. You'll need them soon enough. There are better places to stay....if you can sleep on a plastic bench, at least the rail station has hot water.
