Reviewed 10 July 2013

I've never written a review, but my experience at this hotel surpasses all the horrible experiences that I have ever had. Here are a FEW examples:
1- Air conditioning was advertised, but was not provided
2- TV was advertised, did not work... and the screen was no bigger than an iPad
3- Wireless was advertised, but we found out at checkin that you pay hourly, and half the time was spent trying to connect
4- Very, very dirty.
5- The entire hotel, especially the rooms smelled of mold. The wall paper was falling off, so maybe they have a mold problem within the interior of the walls and floors.
6- Many of the "amenities" that were provided by the hotel did not work. ex: hairdryer, shower head, toilet... and there was no effort made by staff to fix any of this even after MULTIPLE complaints were made.
These are just some of the problems we faced during our 4 night stay at this AWFUL "hotel". After speaking to the owner, we have come to conclusion (us and all the other guests we spoke to) that he is a scam artist willing to tell you anything to make a profit. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not stay at this hotel. There are better quality, and better priced hotels in this area.

Room Tip: Don't even think about it

I expect more for 485 Euros for 3 nights!
This place is clean and well located but know the facts so you can set up your expectations!

The Facts:
- The balcony turned out to be a tin roof with no view, dead plants and no table / chairs
- the sliding bathroom door fell off twice
- shower so small you had to be careful not to turn it off while washing!
- 99 stairs to climb with luggage to get to the room (no help from the owner!)
- depressing, tired decor
- dark with an oppressive feeling (perhaps some sage to cleanse the oppressive Convent energy which remains from the 1600s)
- were locked out of the hotel for 45 minutes while the receptionist (new one everyday by the way!) went to get coffee!
- a minibar in a mini room - under the desk so you couldn't sit at it?

It was clean - the cleaner was the nicest person I met in the place.

I would have been me more forgiving if there was someone friendly to greet you at the door and some kind of warmth and "presence" but all was lacking. Instead a bad attitude, rude and inattentive and arrogant enough to lock you out of the hotel!!

I have had better in a hostel!

This hotel is really in need of a good re-vamp. Our room was tiny with peeling wallpaper, a bathroom door that didn't shut properly and in each lamp one of the two bulbs wasn't working. t was clean, though, and we had a little rooftop balcony which was quirky but overall it was no way worth the money we paid. There are much better places!

When checking-in and paying in advance for the room, the receptionist tired to overcharge me. Advise: keep your reservation with you.
Room temperature was freezing.
When checking-out there were no staff in the hotel and the outside door was locked from outside to prevent any exit. I needed to wait until the receptionist arrived (from his morning baguette search - of course). No apologies, nothing. Except that they still had nerves to charge my minibar consumption (water).

Really, it smelled like feet when you enter the room. Please, change out the carpet and add a fresh coat of paint! Fancy address isn't enough.

ATTN light sleepers: you can hear the next room's conversations (etc.) word for word.

Room Tip: No elevator! Ask for a lower floor if that's an issue.
