convenient, but not practical or safe!

Only stayed 1 of original 4 nights. Upon arriving, found the large wooden doors but no instructions on how to enter. Soon, someone walked up and opened the door so we followed him in. He went to the elevator and went up to the second floor. We did not have a favorable first impression as the first floor was really nothing more than an alley. When we walked into the Roman Terrace, we looked around while we waited for the couple in front of us to finish. It appears the Roman Terrace was only 5 rooms? While registering, the gentleman warned us about pick-pockets, thieves, and Gypsies in the area and hence the state-of-the-art security system. He demonstrated how the key worked on the lobby door, and told us how to work the large wooden doors and that they automatically closed behind you. He also mentioned that the desk was not monitored overnight, so we were on our own. He then showed us to our room. In the room I discovered that the door does not automatically lock behind you. There also was no telephone in the room. The wooden doors did NOT give us any sense of security or safety. When we went out for dinner, I observed that the doors do NOT close completely, unless you pull on them. My wife did not feel safe, especially after the warning we had been given. We opted to leave the next day. I was told I would lose all my money as it was non-refundable. A small price to pay for my wife's sense of safety & security. We would never stay again, nor would I recommend it.
