dear sir/madam,
thank you for your review.
i the owner take your comment seriously.. rude??? explain???
Was there a reason for this.?? I pride myself on having a very helpful staff who speak several languages... Seriously taken aback. It an old saying if you seem to have a problem with something during the time of your stay, it would be greatly appreciated if you came to see the owner /manager during your stay.Statements like these are not helpful when you have left.
I think you may find when I publish what you have paid that it was not at all expensive.. and this property is being totally refurbished from october 2013.
Keep in mind it is a perfect location in the centre of a captial city our prices are including breakfast and taxes no hidden costs.
All I say to you is, its a pity your experience was not postivie.
Hope you enjoy your next trip..
Kind regards
P Moonen
Owner.

This hotel was a great little stop for 3 days for my girlfriend, her friend and myself. We were there late last year and wasnt expecting a lot from this hotel but it suprised us all. The toilet situation wasnt the best with it being communal and our room was ground floor and had doors leading to a garden which didnt feel the safest BUT this is all i can complain about. The hotel staff are amazing and so helpful and even pointed out the best places to visit. For the budget we had this was a great little find and I would recommend it to any one.
