We arrived at the hotel, and as soon as we entered the hostel it stank and was grimy. The receptionist was rude, and kept us waitng, before informing us we would have to wait to check in, even though we were told we could do this anytime after 12. Well 3 hours later we got to our room....
and this after being charged way over what we were told we would have to, like £60 over!
It was so bad, that i took one look and burst into tears.
Dirty, Cramped, Hot, neon lighting, graffit, smashed furniture.....
and worst of all...a toal strange man in our room.
Now we were aware that this may happen and had payed extra to ensure we had the room to ourselves, but the hotel were unhelpful and refused to move the man or refund our extra money!
Mayb it still wouldnt have been so bad but the man kept trying to talk to me, staring at me, and when we went for a walk and came back he was sitting on our friend we had left behinds bed, watching him sleep....
Unsafe to say the least, maybe he was a nice guy, maybe not....the point is the hoselt should never have put us in that position, especially as we paid more to avoid it!!
Despite argeing over this, we felt we had paid under false info, no refund.
We moved hotel just around the corner (Hotel la bonheme) and had a lovely time!
Also it was gay pride when we went (accidentally, we dnt no when booking) sooooo uch fun =]
