Precies zoals op de foto’s. Had iets schoner gemogen. Communicatie met het personeel verliep niet heel soepel maar is uiteindelijk weer goed gekomen.

Leuke kamers, omgeving is minder. Donker en erg ongezellig op een industrieterrein bij de voormalige suikerfabrikant

Rimeligt, men koldt ophold.
Billigt hotel, hvis man tænker økonomisk. Man bor i containere, som er blevet lavet om til små boliger. De er ikke isoleret, hvilket gør vægge og gulve ufatteligt kolde. Derfor skulle man tro, at dem som driver hotellet, havde tændt op for varmen inden ankomst, men det havde de ikke. I den tid vi var der, blev der ikke varmet nok op så man kunne gå rundt uden sko på. Især toilettet var isnende koldt. Kunne forestille mig at det er koldt om vinteren og varmt om sommeren. Beliggenheden var et tomt øde sted, som minder om Christiania i Danmark. “Enter at own risk” stod der på et stort skilt. Lugtede lidt sært på værelset. Gode hovedpuder og dyner. Fint indrettet. Dejligt med et lille tekøkken, hvis man skal have ting opbevaret i køleskab. Fint ophold til prisen. Meget gør-det-selv med ind og udtjekning. Så intet personale på noget tidspunkt.
