We booked this on the internet for one night, so we are not sure if this is why we were given a small, airless, shabby room! The room next door was much larger and brighter! Although the hotel itself has character, it certainly needs some maintenance and redecoration. Our room was very small, dark and depressing and the shower was old and useless! There was also no air conditioning and apart from a door that opened onto the communal balcony, we couldn't let any air into the room. The TV was also situated badly, which couldn't be seen from the bed. To top all this free wifi was only available in the lobby and not in the rooms - not very good for a five star hotel!
