This was my first time trying a “shared bathroom” room and I won’t ever do it again. While it’s not the hotel’s fault, I think potential guests should have an idea of what it’s like. I thought since I was in “off season” and because I was only staying one night for work, I would risk it. The building my room was in had severely drunk guests who were loudly yelling and puking in the bathroom all night. When I went to the shared bathroom in the morning, there were dirty wet towels all over the ground and the toilet was pretty gross. I opted to just wait until I got home to shower. In my opinion, not worth the saved money to share a bathroom unless you’re college kids who don’t care.
The view from my room was very relaxing and I like that you can walk to restaurants and shops within ten minutes. I think the price of the taxis are a little high for short distances but otherwise a very nice getaway. Very clean as well.
