We stayed on two occasions, Monday night and then the following Saturday night and we had room 19 on both occasions.
The room is quite nice and clean, however the shower head was defective and had to be hand held during use. There was also some strange noise from above the room on the first night of the stay, (but not the second), it sounded like a dog tied to a long lead which was being dragged about!!
Security is quite poor, all the room keys have to be put onto a peg board which is outside of the reception room, it’s on the stairway wall and can be accessed by anyone as it’s obvious your not in your room when your key is on the board, therefore anyone can get into it.
My email confirmation from Booking.com said that reception was closed from 13:00 until 16:00 on Saturday so as we needed access to our room in the afternoon we made sure we were there before 13:00. We were actually there at 12:33 and the hotel was closed and a make shift sign had been put on the door saying reception was now closed. This put us out considerably as we had to wait for over 4 hours to be able to access our room and had to sit on a bench with our luggage, thankfully it wasn’t raining.
Booking.com weren’t very helpful either and I wasted 15 minutes on my mobile trying to get some assistance.
The young woman on reception was completely unhelpful and uncaring; she is perhaps in the wrong line of work.
Finally there is no provision for storage of luggage after you exit your room. I personally would have thought that as the only flight to the UK leaves at 22:55 this provision would be available, even for a small charge.
Finally don’t trust the local taxi drivers, we took a cab from the airport and he took 15 minutes to get us to the hotel, he took us onto an auto route and charged 11 euros. I was out running and saw the airport, I did a short detour to the airport departure lounge and my GPS had the distance as being 2.7 miles from the door of the hotel. As we had some hours to pass before we could check into our flight we walked it to the airport, it’s a very pleasant walk, down only one main road, it has very good pedestrian access and we didn’t need to take the motorway.
