My two friends and I used booking.com to book a comfort double room, which was advertised as having one double (full) bed, and one single (twin) bed. After calling to specifically confirm this and being told it was no problem, we proceeded to book. Upon arrival, we were told that this type of room did not exist. The girl at the reception then proceeded to tell us this was our problem and that they couldn't help us. After showing her the booking.com reservation, we were told the hotel was not responsible for information on booking.com as it was not on the hotels website. We were told it was not possible to get an extra bed in the room, we were not offered extra towels, pillows, sheets, etc., and as such, us 3 young men were forced to share 2 single beds for the night, which was less than ideal or comfortable.
While I understand that mistakes happen, the fact that the hotel staff told us the mix up was our fault and was less than accommodating, I would not recommend for anyone to stay here.
