City break

27 September 2010

Liked: Very cheap.

Disliked: Paid for a 4 bed room, got 2 singles beds and a double bed. Only got one key between four people. The guy who took my £10 key deposit wrote "no deposit" on my key deposit slip and didn't give me a receipt. I don't know whether this was a deliberate attempt to defraud or just old-fashioned incompetence, but it did require some negotiation with the receptionist girl the following morning to get my money back. All the shower basins on our floor were blocked, and full of water. Like, to the point that the water was going nowhere except overflowing onto the floor. Not pleasant.

Liked: I prefer the location, it is very close to river Thomes and located in city center. I can easily find theaters and others near this place.

Disliked: I don't like the bathroom. It is quiet small and hard to control the temperature of water.

Sightseeing & culture

12 September 2010

Liked: The location and friendliness of the persons at the counter.

Disliked: For us the main thing was the cleanliness of the room. The blankets and bed sheets had both quite noticeable stains, which completely changed the experience, as we did not sleep well as the feeling of knowing that the bed is dirty is very unpleasant. I would recommend them to really improve this part, as for me it did not even reach an average level.
