“Smelly room and bathroom”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I've been there in 2011, and the only available room was the highest one, on top floor, so we had to climb several stairs to get there. The room and the bathroom were tiny and had a really bad smell. The location is good until around midnight, when the trams stop working and we have to get the night buses that take too long to arrive. One good thing about it was the breakfast, not spetacular, but good one. And there was a guy on the reception that could speak both english and portuguese perfectly, so he could help us with many issues.

They charged a extra Price ón arrival, about 25 euro! The rooms Smelled of urin and kloak . The bathroom was very dirty and smelly. One of the Windows couldent close and the staff seemed indifferrent and stressed out. We checked out before time to another hotel, and it ruined our holiday. Dont go to This hotel if you normally enjoy and appriciate your vacation!

Good location, especially if you hire bikes which I strongly recommend. We didn't hire them from the hotel as we found cheaper at Ajax in the next road. Great to have lidel opposite for picnics and alternative and better breakfast than that at the hotel. You can even buy coffee there. It would be better if the hotel was cheaper and without breakfast. Staff need to clean under the beds as it was a nest of lollies sweet wrappers and water bottles. The beds were abnormally narrow, like sleeping on an ice skate and the room was not big enough to pass one another between beds. All this said, it was the cheapest I found and was otherwise clean with helpful, eager staff. Quiet street, thin walls to next room.
