I have bed bug bites all over me. I actually found one crawling on me which was disgusting!! The breakfast is a very, very poor attempt. They served toast which is not toast but more like the dried croutons you buy at the store. Another attempt at breakfast was 2 small muffins.... Is that what you call breakfast? I asked for a cappuccino and got served hot burnt milk. The rooms were tiny and the SHEETS were NOT WASHED. I asked for a change of sheets coz my first lot was dirty (what looked like a big fluid stain) and they advised me they are supposed to charge me 2.50 euro?? But then they tell me they have a problem with the laundry.... So I get my second lot (in a bag displaying 'sanitised') and they are also dirty, have hairs on them and mascara stains on the pillowcases... clearly these hadn't been washed either. Horrible experience. I recommend you stay elsewhere!!
