one word describes this - HORRIBLE. Urine smell on carpets along hallway and into room - dirty room - definately the photos uploaded by hotel DOES NOT REPRESENT REALITY. We left at the sight of room - and most probably saved us alot of money on Doctors and Dermatoligists if we had slept on bed. To be AVOIDED BY ALL.
totally suprised that Tripadvisor has accepted this 'hotel' as part of its search for rooms. Degrades my perception of Tripadvisor also.
The room is cold so we slept with the A/C on all night, walls are thin so you hear everything including the rude receptionist who talks on the phone non stop all day -half the days she woke us up. It is cheap but definitely not worthy!!
We stayed from 5th October 2016-8th October 2016. The room we had was on the top floor so it was a loft room, you could stand up in the toilet but not in the bedroom. This wasn't advised when we booked the room. We don't mind budget as long as it's clean, but this is not clean, the bedding, walls, cupboards and toilet were dirty when we arrived. The smell on the hallway is also disgusting.
When we arrived we rang the doorbell for Alex Inn twice, no answer. One of the ladies on the other side of the hallway told us to go up to the top floor so we did. Couldn't find anybody so we went back down 6 floors to get the number from the sign outside, we then went back up when we had no luck with the number. When we got back up to the top a lady from Alex inn greeted us very rudely by saying we should not have come up to the top floor without being bought up by her due to the apartments being private. We did advise we had rang the bell, called the number and also been told by a lady downstairs to go up.
The good points: it was in a good location, however it is at the top of a hill so if you have difficulty walking I would look elsewhere. It is also situated in the middle of two lap dancing clubs.
A great and centrally located small B&B.
We stayed with my family in two double rooms, which were nicely furnished and had nice balconies which we used in the mornings and evenings. Staff friendly and flexible.
There were two disadvantages: the quality of breakfast was rather poor and the bathroom in out room was smelly at times. Other than that, everything was very good.
I spent in this inn just one nite, or it would be best to say i COULD NOT spend the nite in the room, because the sheets were full of cat hair.
I am very allergic to cats, so after a day spent visiting Rome with 40 degrees, i come back, lie on the bed and start having an allergic breathing crisis at 1am in the nite.
I had to leave the room and go spending the rest of the night at the close Garda hotel, a little more expensive but it could have been very dangerous for me to stay there.
Other note: there were also ants all around the room. So very poor cleanliness standards. Do not stay here. I got refunded, but the housekeeper was very impolite doubting about my honesty: i really had so much fun simulating a strong breathing crisis in the middle of the nite and go pay another hotel just to recover the price of her dirty room!!! Inacceptable!
