I knew I'd be arriving after diner, but couldn't get through to anyone beforehand which was a bit nerve-racking. Turns out there was someone there after all who let me in, but then there were no sheets on the bed...the concierge fixed that up for me (poly-cotton, but clean). No towels though. Oh and the instructions included a request to strip the bed in the morning. Yeah right! So: good price, but a bit touch and go service wise.

On 2nd day spoke with reception about TV not working. Reception told me maintenance would attend to it that afternoon. Nothing had happened when I left on the morning of the 4th day.
