Arrived at 7.05PM, check-in closes at 7.00. They had called us earlier and said they'd leave the key in a locked mailbox. When I arrived, two people were inside and the door was locked. No key in the box. Knocked on the door and they did give me the key, but said they were too busy to collect the area tax and have me fill in the forms.
The "room" was a small semi-detached apparment that was designed by someone on their first day in architect school - once you opened the outer door, you faced a 1m by 1m "corridor" that had a door on each side. One opened to a tiny bathroom, one to a tiny bedroom and the last one into a tiny living room, which had a "sofa bed" from the 1960's - one where you pull out a drawer that has a mattress in it. That pretty much ate up all the floor space available.
In addition to this, everything was dated and worn out, and cheap. But the worst part was the dampness. Apparently the room had been unoccupied for some time, and hadn't had any heating on. Everything was damp and the temperature was too cool for my comfort, and I usually sleep without a blanket.
The pool closes at seven and opens at 11, so no experience on that front, but the hours are terrible, that's for sure.
