I booked through Expedia, which had a regular room and a suite at a discount price at the same as a regular room. So I took the Suite.
from expedia: SUPERIOR One King Bed "This room measures 465 square feet (42 square meters). For a good night's sleep, the pillowtop bed is dressed with premium bedding and a down duvet. You will have a shower/tub combination with rainfall showerhead, as well as bathrobes, slippers, and designer toiletries."
When I arrived at the hotel, looked perfect. Nice helpful staff, clean and modern lobby, they even greeted us with champagne. I though to myself that: I was in for a treat. And I better be, paying almost 500usd a night, having so many other cheaper option nearby available.
When I got to my "suite" I found a tiny room with a small cornered red and ROUND bed. This room looked like a sleazy tiny motel room. One wall is completely a mirror. Zebra pattern on the floor and a TINY, TINY, TINY!!! room. The room was so small that is seemed to hug around the sleazy round bed. And of course no bathtub, no king bed and no complimentary WiFi.
When I asked if this was my room they said it was and they, to my disbelieve, where completely booked and had no other options to upgrade or change rooms.
So I returned to the tiny room and contemplated on actually lying on the bed or not. It might have been very clean but the room looked so sleazy that for the first time ever I felt repelled from the bed.
Once I managed to actually tuck in I decided to tun on the TV which was completely in a difficult angle to see and the room is so small you cant comfortably sit anywhere else. I decided to try and work only to find that the wifi signal was weak and apparently had to pay for it.
In the morning I showered (the actual piping make a horrific sound that I am sure many other rooms heard) and hurried out of the room instead of enjoying a bathtub, because there was none inthe room as promised. There is a restaurant in the lobby where the rest of the group I was traveling was having breakfast and joined in. After showing pictures of the sleazy room and everybody had a good laugh, I then proceeded to have a very nice and delicious breakfast in the street terrace.
