I booked a room in this place thru a website from a private owner. I should have become suspicious when they only accepted a bank transfer and cash, but unfortunately I threw my considerations to the wind.
It began with the fact that I had to call the owner to find out whether he had received my bank transfer deposit. I didn't even receive a confirmation email or anything and had to do some detective work to find out the address. When we arrived, we had to ask 3 people and when we finally found the place, we couldn't get inside because we didn't know the entry code. Some customer service!
The whole building smells bad. We stayed in a unit meant for 4, but even for the two of us there was no space at all. The room smelled, the bed was disgusting and smelly, separate toilet and rest of bathroom, no towels or bed linen. We had to sleep under duvets with no covers! The room was dirty and there was hair that was neither mine nor my boyfriend's everywhere. The crazy thing is that it wasn't even cheap and we could have stayed in a much better place for the same amount!
I cried for four days and had a nervous breakdown after which we decided to leave. The owner was so arrogant to say that the shabbiness was 'designer' as if to imply I was an ignoramus who knew nothing of design. I've stayed at W hotels the world over, so I know what quality is. Nobody expects the Bourj in Val d'Isere, but I do expect a place to adhere to basic hygiene levels and have adequate bedding.
Please avoid this place, the owners ar clearly having a laugh at their guests' expense. I found this experience nothing but utterly humiliating and want to rid my memory of it.
