My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for five nights. When we arrived we were early for check in so had to wait a while.
Whilst waiting we heard two different groups of people complaining about bed bugs. We did not experience this ourselves thankfully but the hotel itself was really dirty. There was crap everywhere, essentially the halls were used for storage which was not neat.
When we were checking in the hotel staff Tommy (who was great) advised us that there is a room with canal views available but we would just have to wait a bit longer until it is ready. Thank every God known to man for that. That made our stay at the hotel bearable. Sitting out of the window was perfect. The alternative would have been a same size room with a view of some mouldy building. It honestly wouldn't be worth staying there unless you get a canal view room or you will be too intoxicated to care.
The bed was great and a cleaner came in everyday to provide new towels. The room needed a vacuum though and anyone sensitive to dust should stay away.
The bathroom would be perfect for oompa loompas. I am six foot it took around a minute for me to sort out an angle to sit on the toilet or get in the shower.
It is worth mentioning this hotel is not suitable for the unfit the elderly etc walking up those stairs with suitcases felt like I would be arriving at Olympus to meet Zeus.
Breakfast was average: Salami, Ham, Cheese, Boiled Eggs. For what we paid I was expecting more.
Also the most frustrating part of this hotel experience is the false advertising. It is COMPLETELY different to what is described and also shown in pictures.
