We made a reservation for the Casa Cristina by email. It did take a while for them to respond to our initial email, but we did eventually receive confirmation.
When we arrived at the hotel, they were expecting us, but told us "your room is next door". "Next door", where we were unceremoniously dumped, turned out to be a really dingy unwelcoming hostal, where we were shown a dark, cavernous room, with little furniture and less light, and a bathroom that was across the hall in the main entrance area. We made our excuses and left.
It's really frustrating to have made a booking, and then find that the hotel simply fobbed us off with a really inferior room at a completely different hotel. Very bad experience.
