Checked in yesterday on our honeymoon and they suprised us with an upgrade. a larger room with a kitchenette and balcony. Sounded great but it seems more like they wanted to stick us with the room that doesn't work. And the kitchenette is locked, not that we intended to use it anyway.
This hotel feels like it is a classy establishment when you walk in but it seems like it's about 5 years past its prime. The furniture is all chipped and damaged, the air conditioner control panel is dirty with finger prints and broken. Even on the low setting it blows things off the bed, and you can't make it blow anywhere else so you're in trouble if you don't like cold air blowing on you while you sleep. The wiring for the bedside light is hanging out of the wall so when you look up from your bed you see the exposed wires.
The TV worked for about 1 minute then just stopped receiving any signal when I tried to change the channel. The hotel has to send someone up to fix it. Little comfort late at night when you're trying to relax before bed. No tv for me tonight.
The makeup mirror in the bathroom is broken, the room smells like someone dropped a bottle of perfume and the floor is dirty under the table and desk.
The cleaning service woke us up twice before 830am trying to clean our room. Make sure you put the do not disturb card out if you plan to sleep past 8. I'm not sure why they knocked a second time after we told them no the first time.
We're traveling for several weeks so we decided to hang a few shirts to air out, except the pull out laundry cord in the shower is a foot short and didn't reach the hook. I'm not even sure how that happens. Did it ever work?
The staff seem friendly enough but at around €120 a night, this is not a good deal in our opinion. We stayed in an apartment a few nights ago that was less than half this cost and nicer.
The saving point is that the hotel is close to good transit routes and very close to the town parish, which is celebrating its feast this week (which is why we are here). So at least we can enjoy the festivities and amazing fireworks.
