having fought a late flight and a train break down at the airport which made the taxi queue huge we got to Babuino late on Friday night, I knew that the amenities were limited and didnt expect a large reception, big bar etc that goes with a 5* hotel , all I wanted was a clean,comfortable & well located location for our 1st Anniversary.
All of the above were satisfied, unfortunately on arrival we were tramped across the street to a door beside a shop and told this was the annex where we would be located, I did say this had not been outlined previously however, I was advised this was where our type of room was situated.
Now, it might seem petty but this is not what I either wanted or payed for, if I wanted a room above a shop I would have gone to airbnb or a similar. Whilst I appreciate the facilities across the road were available it just is not the same as walking out of your room to a lift and going up a couple of floors, especially as the rain was particularly bad on two days.
And we did visit the roof terrace and bar, and it was lovely but there were no staff !
So, yes, lovely 'hotel' but our room was not in it !
