Our bedspread was stained and there still was hair from the last customer in our shower. The building smells like old cigarette smoke and mildew that management has attempted to cover up with air freshener. We were unaware that downstairs there is a hostel which housed customers who partied outside our window until wee hours of the morning, playing loud music from their parked car. Since our guidebook described this as an ideal "quiet" location, we were sorely disappointed.....especially for the price we paid!!!!!!!
We booked the accomodation after reading a favorable review from "Lonely Planet" (usually a great resource). Since booking, we read unfavorable recent reviews but ignored them. Our advice is to LISTEN to all these reviews and either book somewhere else or negotiate a much lower price than asked and set your expectations low.
