  • OK hotel. Chosen because cheap & large lockers in rooms. Rooms are clean but building = rabbit warren painted in garrish colours. No elevators. Bathroom/toilets are a bit of a disaster. Having the toilet seat up blocks access to the flush button and flushing the toilet is not terribly effective. The toilet & shower cubicles are tiny, bathrooms have light timers which turn off when nobody enters within couple of min resulting in showers in the dark. Shower water turns itself off every 15 seconds!

  • It would be better if you could inform guests in advance that they need to bring their own padlock for locker.
