“Disgusting room, rude staff”
Reviewed November 1, 2008

After reviewing their website and getting a recommendation from another hostal, I booked Hostal Roma.

We arrived to room 202. Right in the back. These rooms have a dark, musky smoky feel and in the middle of the night, both of us woke up choking due to the bad air quality.

We asked for the airconditioning, but it had little effect.

We would have tried to open a window but thy opened to face a storage room! We even woke up to hearing people in the storage room! The bathroom was not very clean either; the glasses had some residue and there was still toothepaste remains on the little shelf.

In the morning, we shared our complaints. A lady came in from another hostal down the street to assist. She claimed that if we had difficult breathing, we should have opened the window. Of course, she stated that a window to the storage room is enough for fresh air! She said that Air conditioning in october does not work. They argued that since we saw the room and had slept in it that we should not have the right to complain the morning after.

We were forced to pay the price of 65 euro for a double, which is a complete ripoff even without these complaints. The staff were not helpful with our concerns and I would not recommend staying in their hostals.

We were a group of 11 and stayed three nights. While some of the rooms on the upper floors were light and reasonably roomy, our own room, 303 was TINY and had only one window which was about one square foot and only allowed in air. It opened onto a storage closet. Avoid room 303! But if you get one of the rooms in the front, you'll be happy.

This hostal is located in a great area and is centrally located. It was wonderful to walk around in the old quarter. We were able to get a private bath which was nice. But we had to ask for clean sheets and towels despite the room already being considered "cleaned". The management was not as friendly about it as they should have been, in my opinion. So consider it a functional place. I wouldn't drink out of the water glasses provided.
