A pension, I now know, is not a hotel. When arriving at 6 pm there was no one from pension to check us in and no code given to us to get in building, fortunately door to building was left agar by mistake and the cleaning lady was present and gave us a key code and room key without any identification confirmation. Later at night when we needed to reach the pension to alert them that there was no air conditioning, the phone in room had a dead battery , no plug, and desk phone had no dial tone. An email to pension was answered alerting me that there is no air conditioning in the pension after 10 pm no matter what the temperature they cannot turn it on "by law". It was very hot that night and other people in pension were also in hallway complaining about stifling heat. All said, breakfast is excellent, location is excellent, price is good as long as you don't come in the summer. Also walls are thin and can hear neighbors more then desired. Construction in hallway and no elevator so not for people with disabilities now. Would be nice if pension web site would alert disabled people about this although we managed fine.
