We booked at the Villa Via via Expidia for a 7 night stay. The pictures displayed make this hotel look like the Ritz! On our approach to the hotel, I was shocked at its run down state. The external paint was falling off the wall. It would be more suited in a township.
The staff were in helpful. We wanted some soft drinks after a 24 hr flight. We were advised that the hotel didn't sell soft drinks. We where taken to our room, which was directly off the breakfast area. No security, just a wooden single lock door. The room smelt damp, the cupboards where filthy and the bathroom black mould.
We where so tired after our journey. However, this didn't stop us walking straight back out of the room and leaving the hotel at Mach 1 speed. We didn't even take our luggage from the car.
We are not complainers, and in my opinion, if we did complain, the standard of the accommodation would still have been the same.
Unfortunately there is a zero rating. Therefore I have to apply on circle.
Please take our advice. DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL.
