inexpensive but filthy bedroom
Posted Jul 26, 2011
We booked this guest house via Expedia after having compared the location and price with other similar hotels/guest houses.
Since there were no useful reviews over this place so we hope this one will help others.
The location is pretty good, right on the edge of the Art Neuveau district and easyly accessible on foot of by bus/trolley from the transport hubs and the old town.
The reception is acceptable if not super friendly. The building itself is old and has its charms. The communal areas such as stairs and small dining area where breakfast is served are in acceptable conditions. However the bedroom is in very poor state of repair and hygiene. We chose a en-suite option which has a very recently installed sanitary unit that worked perfectly but not cleaned properly that the toilet stunk.
The bedroom floor was not vacuumed and there is a very old rug over old (original) timber floor which was extremely filthy, full of human and whoknowswhat hair and other things attached. The rug may be meant for winter time when the guest has snow covered shoes but in summer when the room temperature exceeds 30 degrees C we were not very happy guests.
Another disappointment was that the towels supplied stunk as well, even the fresh ones we were given the next day.
The wifi connection in our room was not very consistant and often dropped.
It is possible that some rooms are completely new and some rooms are in a condition as described above.
I just cannot recommend this.
