1. The online registration for the room was confusing. We asked for a double and twin room. They assigned us one room for 4 people, not two rooms.
2. I called 2 days before we were due and asked for a booking for the day prior as well. I was told we were only booked for one 4-bed room but they had rooms for a double room and a twin room for both nights and would change it.
3. We arrived and found that my conversation with them had no record and that we not only were still scheduled for the 4-bed room but no reservation for that night. They did find us a room for the first night and two rooms for the second night.
4. The charge was $72 per person per night, whether in a 4-bed or 2-bed room in spite of the fact that the internet confirmation stated the charge was $60 per person per night.
5. Three of us are over 70. We were given room #1. That meant that we had to lug our bags (2-week luggage) up three very steep stair-cases.
I've had better stays in Tibet, Bangladesh, Peruvian Amazon, Kenya, Nepal, New Guinea.... I am not a novice traveler.
All in all, a bad experience.
