Mediocre stay and a unnoticeable hotel upgrade.
We arrived are our hotel which was close to the railway station only to ne told that due to a electrical problem at the hotel our room wasn't available (there were other people using the hotel) and that we were uograded to one of there other hotels which was 4 star so an upgrade. The lovely lady escorted us to the new hotel just 30 seconds away (Villa Otero). We were welcomed and checked in swiftly and given our room key. We arrived at our small room to a damp and nasty smell and a view of the hotels backyard complete with rubbish bins and disused pallets lying around. Nice view! After about 10 minutes I could handle the smell no more so I returned to reception and politely asked whether we might be able to swap rooms and explained the smell to which the receptionist seemed extremely put out by and muttered something about a problem with the air con in the hotel. Surely that needed to be advised or addressed upon check in. We moved rooms to one which smelt much better however this time the bathroom was missing bath and shower gel, towels and a toilet lid!! I returned to reception to a frosty welcome and a dirty look to be thrust a key and told to take the towels from my old room. Charmed I'm sure! As for the rest of the stay, well aside from being a long walk from the Avenue Des Anglais all else was ok and the daytime staff were much more pleasant and welcoming plus the idea that you can use any of the other hotels in the chain and enjoy Happy Time is great!!

Good place to stay!
It was just across the train station, handy if you need to travel by train to other cities. Staff were very nice and I really enjoyed my stay there, although I will not stay there if I was traveling solo because it is a little far away from the main plaza. parking is across the street about 24 euros the day.
