We booked this apartment after having seen pictures of the rooms, but left immediately upon arrival to find a different hotel. The rooms bore no resemblance whatsoever to the pictures, which I can only imagine must have been fake. We had booked a two bedroom apartment through travel republic, but were told when we got there that there were not any two bed apartments and that the travel company had been told this. When we were shown to the room, which turned out to have one bedroom with two single beds, our hearts sank - it was absolutely awful, dingy, thoroughly depressing and our first thoughts were that we could not possibly stay there. I know it is cheap, and I have stayed in some basic apartments before, but it honestly looked like a slum.
The manager was rude and dismissive, and demanded to know why we had wanted a two bedroom apartment anyway. After speaking with locals, we found out that many people have been fooled by the photos shown of these apartments, but most are young and can't afford to go and find somewhere else to stay. Thankfully, we could, although in high season it was hard (and expensive) to find somewhere else, but it would have been grim to stay there for even one night. I am not in the habit of trying to destroy small business owners' livelihoods, but to show pictures which could not possibly be of the accommodation is simply a scam, let alone not being given the type of apartment which was booked, ie two bedroom. I will be taking it up with Travel Republic when I get home, but I just wanted to warn people what they might be getting.
