Incredibly disappointing. We did not stay through our reservation.
We did not receive instructions on how to arrive or enter the building.
The unit we had booked wasn't what we were given; we were offered a larger, comparable room (which we accepted) but it ended up being filthy, & several flights upstairs (my mother has mobility issues, & this was a concern communicated in my request.)
Dead flies, black mold & an odd smell greeted us; the bedding smelled & the front door didn't close, although the doors to the bedrooms locked but we couldn't reach each other once we had locked them.
When I saw the unit, I asked a neighbor to borrow his phone & contacted the phone number listed on our reservation. Stan answered & when I explained our circumstances, was quite gruff & unapologetic. When I explained we didn't feel safe staying there (the black mold & the front door not closing) he was dismissive & rude.
We stayed the 1st night as it was late, but there was noise all through the hallways - it's a college dorm style environment.
In the morning, I received a message from Stan that offered another room in the building but we had had a rough night & wanted to leave.
I spoke with a kind woman at the management office 2 doors down who was kind & told me they had received several complaints before & offered to help me find other accommodations in the area.
Strangely, this is the first time we have seen a guest have this experience.
We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and this is again the first time a guest has complained. All our bed linen is professionally laundered from a certified supplier.
It says more about the guest themselves when they question security. We have an office on the same terrace and security CCTV cameras throughout. We have checked with the lady on our management office and she does not recall saying she "received several complaints"
Sadly we understand not every staying guest will be satisfied. Happily the vast majority of our guests and reviews express satisfaction with their experience
Super cool place at 5 minutes walking distance from the city centre! Very quite, clean and enjoyable. Oh, and the staff is professional, kind and welcoming, too. Would I recommend it? Just 2 words: oh-yeah!!!
The room and all facilities were good. The owner and the female receptionist were helpful. They did more than what i had expected.
I am recommending this place for all of you.
This is not a stay for people who value luxury. It is very basic, as in I had a bed and a desk. There was a lamp, I replaced the bulb, and it remained broken.
The kitchen did what it was supposed to. I wasn't hassled by the owners. But I would only recommend this place in a pinch.
Assez lamentable comme endroit, enfin vu le prix, j'aurais dû me méfier
Ce n'est ni plus ni moins qu'une auberge de jeunesse avec chambres privées et sans dortoir
Les avantages : c'est très bien situé, les filles à l'accueil sont très sympa et souriantes, chambre et salle de bains propres
Mais les photos sont luxueuses par rapport à la réalité
La cuisine par exemple est loin d'être aussi pimpante et propre
Malgré la présentation du lieu par la responsable qui semblait indiquer que les résidents étaient des gens bien élevés et respectueux, il y a avait bien du chahut le soir, alcool et tabac...clientèle très jeune
Et surtout les 2 portes communes (entrée et cuisine) qui claquaient (portes simples) violemment parfois toutes les 5 mn, j'étais au dessus de la cuisine, je vous laisse imaginer.
J'avais réservé 4 nuits et suis partie après la 3ème
Great location. Cheap and cheerful place to stay. The room is basic but comfy. The bathroom is shared with one other and was fine. I enjoyed it for a short stay.
