Try it - the nightclub is gone!
Posted May 22, 2012
We booked this hotel BEFORE reading the reviews and after reviewing them we were very worried about the upcoming experience. Luckily, things worked out well. Most importantly, THE NIGHTCLUB HAS MOVED and it was a nice quiet evening.
The doors have electronic locks and See the Sea has to email you that info. We were not aware of this and had not checked for emails, so we did have some temporary concerns. If you do not have email access for the day you are arriving, you will have to arrange to get your access codes some other way before you get there. As mentioned by others, THERE ARE NO STAFF MEMBERS to help you out - this is completely self catering.
Yes, schlepping up your bags is a pain, and we had two big bags to haul up three flights of stairs. But it's only a few minutes of exertion (and we probably could all use the exercize ;-# It would be much easier if you only had carry-on luggage :-)
The free wi-fi worked fine with my iPad 2, so maybe things have been fixed since the April comments.
The building and halls are nothing to write home about #and the outside access door 20 feet down a dingy side alley is not inviting), but the room was fine. We are non-smokers and there was the smell of smoking in the hall, but the room itself was clean and fresh smelling.
It's not 5 stars, but it is good value. I would do it again without any hesitation.
PS - Staff rating of "2 - Disappointing" is misleading - they were not dreadful or anything, just absent :-)
