1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property owner deny my check in saying that no infant allow. And check in time is before 3pm sharp. She message me via expedia one day before my check in date say no late check in and no refundable. Beware of this scam hotel appartment. The contact number at expedia website is incorrect too.

Money stolen
My friend and I recently stayed at this place for three days and never met any of the staff. On our last night we went out for dinner for three hours, and left some of our cash hidden in our luggage. The next day, after checking out, we both realized some of the money left at the place was stolen. I lost about 100 pounds and my friend lost about 100 pounds and 100 euro. They did not take all of the money, but instead took a variety of bills, making it less noticeable at first glance. Because we had counted our money the night before, we are both certain that our money was stolen during the time we left the hotel. As travelers, it was extremely difficult to connect with the hotel staff as they were never to be seen. They were only available by phone and we did not travel with an international SIM card. Thereby we are writing this review to warn fellow travelers and for the hotel to get in touch with us to resolve this issue.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Did not like that needed to confirm how to get in as no front desk. It isn't,t until you book the hotel it is mentioned that you need to get instructions. One couple who already got there from China who already paid did not realize this phoned their booking agency and found out their room was now not available and they lost their payment. Now they were trying to find a room at 8:30 at night. I had an experience that I was trying to call the hotel to get my instructions. I finally had to call expedia only to be told that they do not answer their phone untill 10:30 am. Lady who took payment abrupt. Wasn't given sightseeing pamphlet s and no area map. Overall would rate this room as a 1 out oh 5 due to staff and difficult y in signing in into room. Expedia should let people know about this room.
