There is nothing luxurious about this hotel, but you wouldn't expect there to be for the price. Very basic, but clean and a decent location.
My stay was tainted by the fact that 2 weeks after I checked out, the hotel charged the card i had used to make the reservation, even though we had paid in full on arrival. To make matters worse, when I contacted them about it, they said it wasn't their fault and denied the charges had been made, even though I had proof from the bank. They kept fobbing me off saying they were looking into it, which to me seemed ridiculous as there was nothing to look into - they had charged me twice and owed me £150. Eventually, they just ignored me, so I had to contact my bank and raise a dispute, which led to me eventually getting a reply to my email from the hotel and a refund. The refund was £10 less than they took though - presumably they are charging me an admin fee?! Appalling service - obviously when I asked them about this, they just ignored me. I would never ever stay there again as the experience afterwards ruined the trip. If i had £300 a night to spend on a hotel, I would not have chosen Hotel California! If I hadn't involved the bank, I don't think I would have got the money back - felt like a scam.
Great location, staff are very friendly, there was very interesting.
Electrical outlets are an odd shape, so my European adapter wouldn’t fit.
No charm but it's okay.
Location was great
My room overlooked the internal courtyard
A/C wasn't working well so I had to open the window
