“Uups, shared toilet - not what we excepted”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

We thought this hotel is ** Hotel, but it is almost a low level hostel.

Home made breakfast was tasty and service was excellent in cramped dinner room - Breakfast was only acceptable part of visiting.

The rooms have not toilet. Shared toilet in corridor was not as big where a normal sized man could sit and thing - when you have number 2 thing, you had to keep the door open - not very nice. Do not imagine hairy legs etc... There is a tiny portable shower in the room, dusty air, mouses, smell etc.... huh - never again.

Room Tip: Rooms are noisy and dirty, upper flat rooms are quitier

The room was dirty and very small. The sheets on the bed had hair on them from some previous guest. The shower was blocked and the water presure very low. There was an old fridge in the room and not realizing that it was not switched on I opened the door: there was rotting food inside and the smell was terrible. The window did not shut properly so the road noise from outside kept me awake. They had no other rooms and I had arrived too late in the evening to find anywhere else. Probably my worst hotel experience ever.

We had well in advance booked an ensuite room with two beds. I had read that some persons were cheated, but that surely would not happen to us, we are nice people =) But of course that was exactly what happened. At first they tried to give us a room whithout toilet and shower. Then we showed them our copy of the booking. In the end we got a VERY small room with one bed. The sheets were less broad than the bed, so we slept on the mattress itself. But the room was very clean! After two nights we were moved to a room with 2 beds. This room was the most filthy you can imagine. Never cleaned. I got so much allergy, so I had to SIT all night because of coughing. The breakfast was very good! But we have never ever had so bad service. We were totally deceived!

Room Tip: Always bring a copy of the booking. Two hotels are run together. The Pearl hotel to the left is muc...

I booked two nights at this hotel last week. A complete disappointment. I didn't even stay the second night. The room was smelly the shower was a joke! (a portable shower in the room!) There is no toilet in the room! Definitely not recommended, believe me! Extremely overpriced for what you get! I should had read the reviews before I booked it!
