June/2014 Someone from Huesca thinks:

  • Overall rating: 1.7
  • Would you recommend it? No
  • Positive: Nada
  • Negative: Mucho ruído, la habitación daba a la calle. No se puede regular el aire acondicionado de la habitación. Por los conductos de aire salía un aire frío a unos 19 grados y hacia mucho ruído esa ventilación. Tuve que dormir vestido. Tenía que cargar la batería de la máquina de fotos y el portatil pero se negaron a darme otra tarjeta para poder irme de la habitación y dejar una tarjeta para que funcionaq e ra la luz y otra tarjeta para llevarmela para abrir la puerta. Pensé en dejar mi única tarjeta en la luz, cerrar la puerta y al regresar al hotel decir que se me había quedado dentro la tarjeta por error pero no me fié porque en recepción casi nunca hay nadie. Por eso es lowcost porque no quieren que gastes luz y no quieren que el recepcionista esté las 24 horas del día como es obligatorio en los hoteles que yo sepa. El precio no es nada barato para ser lowcost. No tiene ningún servicio. La fachada es poco bonita, el ascensor pequeño, no hay armario, la puerta no abre hasta al final y tropieza en el centro del lavabo, es incómodo lavarse o mirarse al espejo.

May/2014 Someone from Johannesburg South Africa thinks:

  • Overall rating: 2.6
  • Would you recommend it? No
  • Positive: The honesty of refunding us our full payment, this is very welcome.
  • Negative: The ticks and bites and blood spatters from dead ticks. The inability to keep clients updated at all times about situations which concern them
  • I RECOMMEND it for...
  • I recommend it especially AGAINST...
  • Cleanliness: Not rated Crawling ticks in bed show a lack of fumigation and that's part of cleaning
  • Location: 7.5 It was easy for us to get around from where we were
  • Common facilities and services: Not rated
  • Staff: 5 They were generally nice but there is nothing more frustrating to a client than to hear "I don't know". Customer service calls for a service provider to do their utmost (pick up a phone and ask) for a customer
  • Quietness: 7.5 There are kids and cars on the road but this was welcome
  • Room: 5 Its a basic room enough to sleep in.
  • Value for money: Not rated Since we didn't sleep and stood all night and have bite marks left on us unfortunately we lost more. We are just glad that we were refunded.
