What a great disappointment
Posted Jul 14, 2015
We arrived on a hot day to a sweltering room in the middle of summer. Air con didn't work. We complained to the night manager who basically said "what can I do about it?". After a restless, sleepless, uncomfortable night, we were not well rested, refreshed or happy. We complained to the day manager who said she would fix it. We went out for the day, arrived back late afternoon to rest, but still found a sweltering room. We went downstairs to complain to find someone else making the same complaint. Only because they had 5 rooms booked did the staff see fit to act on the matter finally (we obviously weren't important enough). They later promised it would be fixed in three hours (leading into the night), we proceeded to change accomodation. Only when we went to check out early did they begin to offer us any alternatives. For us, by then it was too late, unassisted by their scowling faces and the fact they didn't realise we understood every word they said to each other about us in Italian (although we pointed this out). We were still charged FULL PRICE for the night we stayed despite all of the above and them not providing an essential service, without which we would not have booked in the first place. Plus the wi-fi doesn't work in the room. We moved to the friendly, accommodating and air conditioned Villa Schuler just 3 mins down the road - cheaper, more spacious, better wifi, better views - we recommend there instead.
