Poor1.0 / 5
A terrible night. When we arrived they said they had no more rooms, but gave us a key to a small building about a block away, I guess a type of "annex". But it was NOTHING like the hotel - no lobby, bar, pool, or anything of that nature. The room was terribly small with just a bed squeezed in, and the bathroom was equally small. I'm amazed they get away with this.

Worst Travel Experience of my life
I booked this hotel through Hotels.com, and secured it with my Am Ex. When I tried to check in the desk manager demanded cash payment. When I refused he said that there was nothing that he could do if I didn't want to pay cash. An argument ensued and he asked that I leave the hotel, and I did. The lobby was dirty, and outdated in décor ( I never got to see a room). The customer service was horrible! I walked down the street and found a clean modern hotel ( the Baltum) I should also add, that I called Hotels.com for an alternative booking, when I had no place to stay, they told me that they would need to call me back. When they did not for over an hour, I went out and found the Baltum on my own. Hotels.com never did get back to me about the situation.

DO NOT BOOK!!!!!
This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! We were put up in a room on the 9th floor that needed 2 elevators to get to! My partner asked for us to be moved to a lower floor as we did not like how far the room was away from everything and we were also told the cleaners don't attend the 9th floor!!!! they eventually moved us to the 4th floor and we walked into a room that wasn't cleaned after the other pupils left? Our wardrobe was flooded in ants and green mold! We immediately went Down to reception to explain the conditions of the room and the receptionist (Elena) told us we asked to move and what did we expect because we asked to move? She was nothing but the rudest ever receptionist I cane across not at all helpful! We asked for clean towels and were told that clean towels are giving every 4 days and beds are changed once during your stay and we were staying for 10 days!!!!! Cleaners also don't work Saturday or Sunday so no bathroom essentials are giving!!! I would never in a million years stay at this filthy rude damp hotel ever again!! A guy named Bruno who worked at night time was never nothing bit nice to Me an my partner and even brought his own tools in to help fix our air conditioning himself! He should be working at a 5 star hotel as his excellent work skills and people engagement made us feel at ease!I would highly recommend Bruno to look elsewhere for a job position as he is to good for that rot of a place hotel! Absolutely no stars given here DISGRACE!

Perfectly Adequate
The room and bathroom were well equipped with kettle, tea, coffee etc, however the maid did not clean under the bed and the floor was very dirty. One of the receptionists was very abrupt and rude to everyone on all 3 occasions I saw her to me and the other people she dealt with. New loungers round the pool would be good the hard plastic wave shaped ones are extremely uncomfortable. But I would definitely stay there again, generally clean, great location.
