MUST READ!!! I am an experienced traveler, I have been to many countries of Eastern Europe, Western Europe and Asia. I saw many countries, cities and hotels. But such a hotel ..... I have never seen in my life!!! And unfortunately it's not in the good sense of the word The deception of you begins with the Booking website, or any site for finding accommodation. The description contains beautiful, bright photos, it is indicated that there is a "sea view", a balcony, and most importantly, when you set the filter in the Booking application, this place will be in the "show only hotels" category I can only call it a hotel in a nightmare. That was my stay there. 1) You enter the "hotel" through the doors of an apartment building, there is no reception, no one meets you, and you can't speak English with anyone. Because the people you meet are just residents of the house who don't know about you. Looking around, you will see huge piles of garbage near the house, as well as a persistent smell of urine. 2) When you finally find out and take the elevator to the "hotel" you will be met by a keybox and old wooden door. After entering you will find yourself in an apartment in which different people live, absolutely strangers to you. But soon they will become "very close people" to you, and do you think this is because you want to? No! That's because the door to your room is as thin as cardboard! 3) Unfortunately, hiding behind that thin door won't make you feel any better. Firstly, because it is dirty - around the doorknob there is a huge stain from the dirt of the hands of hundreds of people who lived here before you. I will attach a photo. 4) Of course, you will want to wash your hands or take a shower after such dirt. But even here a surprise awaits you - the bath is less than 1 meter in size, it is convenient only for a child to enter, an adult will not be able to enter and close the door behind him. But this is not the worst! I found a human hair on the shower faucet! Want to take shower with random people's hair? You in this hotel! 5) But the bathroom has a window! Do you think there is a sea view from there? How naive you are! Garbage view is your choice! You will get the same view from the window of your room. Do you know what the owner said? He said that if you can see the sea from another room, then it is considered that the apartment has a sea view. I will know now. When I go to another hotel and they have a sea view from the staff toilet, I will assume that I have a sea view. I will also attach a photo. I also forgot to mention the gray towels, the smell of dampness in the room, and the old air conditioner, which turned yellow from how old it is. And all this for 550 euros, for the 5 days that I had to live there. Of course, I only stayed there for one night. And only because I was on the road for 12 hours and I had two flights. When I wrote to the owner on WhatsApp that I was moving out tomorrow, I received only an ignore. He never answered me again, even when I wrote that I had left the keys in the keybox. No one apologized, no one offered compensation, and of course no one gave me back my money! I just gave them as a present for owner, for not being able to live in filthy and unsanitary conditions. I don't know who writes all these good reviews, maybe friends of the owner. And I offer the first honest review of an experienced traveler and attach a photo.
