Arrived at the hotel after a 15min walk from the train on a 37degree day, very hot and sweaty. The reception sumed up the hotel prefectly...unprofessional. The old guy on reception gave us a map and full details on buses, city etc which was nice however this was the last thing we wanted to hear about after our walk in the hot sun with heavy bags, we just wanted to get to our room. Our room had an external bathroom which was not right next to our room and opens up to a lobby area along with four other rooms. The room was very old looking which squashed bugs on the walls. No air con only a fan that went one speed....extremely slow and did nothing. The room was a hot box at night and we had to sleep with cold towels over us. We complained about the fan but nothing was done about this. Walls are very thin. Breakfast was very basic, corn flakes, coco pops, budget museli, dry pastries, bread and spreads. The staff were not freindly at all, I asked for a knife as there were none on the table and was told I would need to wait 10minutes and they were all dirty. Worst hotel I've stayed at across Europe. Look else where!!
