Awfaul Stay

by Maewhoo on 06 Sep 2016 (Friends Traveller)

I don't know where to begin. Things were going well until I woke up with bed bug bites. Rooms are so old and dirty. Breakfast was rubbish to be honest it just bread with cheese and 2 selections of ham, they also had corn flakes but the milk looked like it had been out for ages., dirty cellar. The location was perfect but not the stay. All of my arms are covered in bed bites. I didn’t have time to go and complain whilst I was there. I sent an email and had range them the next day and I spoke to a...

Don't give them a detail of your visa/master card!

by an0niem96 on 03 Sep 2016 (Friends Traveller)

I don't know where to begin. Everything is disgusting about this hotel. Rooms are so old and dirty. He told us that our room was the best room in the hotel, I wonder how others rooms look like then. You better buy some breakfasts and eat in the street, rather than in the old, dark, dirty cellar. I was shocked seeing this hotel. We gave him the detail of our master card for the booking garanty and when I checked my account, I lost 50euro. When I returned to Belgium, I went to the bank and asked t...

Not nice

by juliejW2575VK on 24 Jun 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Totally different to what was advertised. Dirty shared bathroom, wet floor shower with mould visible. Tiny room with inadequate security. See through threadbare curtains. No closet or space for bags. Very noisy location and extremely steep and twisty stairs (even compared to other accommodation). Found alternative accommodation and did not complete stay here. Photos show double bed, space and advertised picture to compare. Advised to check room prior to paying if you stay here. Expensive for low...

I was there 5 nights, 4 days with my boyfriend. First, we take room on the ground floor, which was with toilet. The bed was uncomfortable and dirty, Third night we crossed in another room on first floor (no 1), it was much better but without toilet in room. Common toilet was acceptable. Breakfast is the same every morning (bread, cereal, milk, juice, coffee, yogurt, butter, jam, cream, cheese, salami). Every day we get new towels. People who work there are very friendly and helpful. Wifi is not ...

good location, but needs lots of improvements

by Rohise on 20 Apr 2016 (Solo Traveller)

I booked a twin room with private toilet and shower. at a price of about 240pounds for three nights, I say it's not cheap and I would have liked more improvements to be done. It has good location, along the Gentleman's canal and at the corner of Rembrandt Square. If you like bars and 'coffeeshops', then go ahead and book this one because these are literally outside the door. It can get a bit noisy at night and the smell from all kinds of 'smoke' can get inside and linger in your room. Every to...
