“An average hotel but good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2011

This hotel does not have modern amenities and could use some updating, but it did have the basics. It is what I expect in these older establishments but it could be a deal breaker for some. The restaurant/bar area was extremely hot at night during my stay, prob 85 degrees and you get the grease smell on you as I don't think the cooking area has good ventilation. The food and beer were good though.

The rooms were OK at best. The room has no separate body soap and shampoo, just a bottle of liquid soap. If you ask the reception staff, they will give you bar soap for free. I would recommend walking across the street to the store and buying some though as it would be a bit better quality. The internet is free, but very slow and it is difficult to connect. I picked up the T-Mobile wi-fi, and purchased it (8 eur an Hour), and it was a decent speed although a rip-off. The mattress was just ok as well as the bedding. Shower was just big enough for me to fit into and take a shower. I am only 5'9'' btw so not most comfortable shower around.

We had a business reception here and that part of the stay was great. Besides that, the stay was just average at best.

This is a mediocre little mom and pop joint in a very pretty little town.

My reception was not overwhelming and despite the fact that there seems to be few guests it took longer than I would have expected to locate my reservation.

I'm not sure what it's trying to be, on the one hand the walls are festooned with long dead stuffed animals and on the other there are cheap figures of Laural and Hardy. It's too "busy" with cheap tat everywhere.

The hallways are dark and to save money the lights are turned off at night. When I left for work on the first morning I couldn't locate a light switch and was forced to navigate in almost total darkness.

The bathroom contains a stained toilet, a sink with leaking taps, an almost empty bottle of liquid hand soap (nothing is provided should you wish to shower) and both the bath and the sink have plugs with no chains. Pulling them out after us is such fun!

They have a novel approach to the age old problem of the shower curtain sticking to you when you shower: they simply don't bother to have one. You can imagine the joy of stepping out of the shower on to a wet, tiled floor and slipping at some speed to the aforementioned stained toilet!!!!!

I was also not overly impressed at having religion rammed down my throat by the presence of the huge wooden cross and rosary which decorates the wall.

A desk is provided, with the hardest and most basic of chairs. There is a refrigerator (not working). There are wardrobes (with bent keys).

Internet access is free (if you want to sit in reception) or you can use a T-Mobile hot spot in the room and a price of 8 Euro's per hour or 29 for 30 days. FANTASTIC way too sort or way too long. Way to rip off the visitors or what???

I guess at 50 Euro's per night it is a place to sleep, but all in all I think I would have preferred the car.
