"Don't book a room for 4 and expect a room for 4!"
Booked a 4 person room for a night after a wedding nearby, I had no illusions that for the low price we would be getting a top notch hotel but it would have been better to get 4 beds instead of the two sofa that we found. As we had to check-in very early, leave for the wedding and then return very late there were no staff to ask about this slight anomaly. After a few minutes of sofa-origami we were able to have a room that boasted 4 "beds". Luckily two of our number were under 170cm tall which meant they could perch on the sofa beds. To allow 4 beds we had to modify the room and so we had very little space in the already small area to use for, you know, moving about. The room was over hot and when we opened the window all the local insects rejoiced at the feast they found, however we cannot blame the hotel for this, unless they would like to fit air-con for future guests.
The staff though were excellent: Our Swedish is very poor and instead of an awkward conversation we found the staff spoke fluent English and they were able to check us in early, book taxis and generally give a great service. The breakfast was OK and included in the rate.
