The staff spoke absolutely no English and did not attempt to hide their displeasure at our having arrived an hour before check-in time of 2pm. Neither were they any more accommodating when we once outrageously requested a second cup of coffee at breakfast (a desultory affair with stale cake). Our "matrimonial room" had a bed so small I don't think it was even a double. The mattress was cheap and old. The room was only fractionally larger than the bed. The suitcases wouldn't fit in the miniature wardrobe and had to be left by the bed, giving the impression that we were living atop a pyramid of our belongings. The bathroom was functional but tiny. The floorboards on the staircase outside our door creaked loudly late at night and early in the morning when we were trying to sleep in our tiny bed. The hotel is cute, reasonably tasteful and in a good area (hence 3 stars rather than one or two) and reminiscent of the cute little hotels you sometimes find in Paris - but I don't remember those being quite this small. At checkout we had to wait 20 minutes for the only person authorised to draw up our bill. We had to leave anyway or miss our plane. This made the staff (who didn't have planes to miss) pout and carry on like we were thieves. The management had our credit card details anyway (and billed us later) but we were unable to explain this to the staff whose scowling faces were our last impression of this hotel.
