  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

Hotel was located above a bar/club which wasn’t mentioned anywhere? Extremely loud until 6 in the morning, staff were pleasant but no one was about to talk to about the issue or to book a cab for us. Stairs were extremely steep, had to go up 3 sets with a 20kg bag and no staff offered any help. NOT worth the 300 Euros we spent to stay there for 3 nights. No air con with a small room got very hot, ruined our experience completely.
