Gates Shut, No One Home

I can't speak to the quality of the room, because I never got to SEE my room. I had a confirmed reservation, but we didn't get out of the airport till after midnight, and by the time our taxi delivered us to the hotel, the big iron gate to the parking lot was closed, and required a code that no one had bothered to give us. We got into the fortified compound only because a resident who knew the code ambled by, but even then there was no one to talk to. The office was closed, we called the phone number we'd been given, and we could hear it ringing inside but no one picked up. The result was that we were left outside in the cold at 1 in the morning, with no room and no hope of getting one. So we ended up in an Ibis hotel near the airport at 180 Euros per night. Travelers should be warned that if they arrive late in the evening, they'll find themselves locked out.
