2/10 Poor

The room had a terrible smell, the floor was dirty and sticky, there was no soap in the bathroom. The toilet seat was all scuffed and needed and update asap. The bathroom curtains and door were all splattered with stains, there was no hot water and the noise from the nearby club was extremely loud. I would expect a lot more for the priced that we paid.

2/10 Poor

I never stayed here! Property was listed in close proximity. I was thinking walking distance from my search location. Being it was after 10pm when eye found myself stranded in a foreign country with my 7 year old, a low cell battery, and speaking very little Spanish. With that said i ended up being suggested this hotel. However upon booking and address check Google maps showed no transportation available. I asked a local who told me that street was not in that town. There were about 10 other hotels or hostels where we could have stayed. This IS what happened HOTEL RINCON D'OLON SAVED US.... THE OWNER DIDN'T EVEN CHARGE US RIGHT OFF THE BAT UNDERSTANDING MY SITUATION. BUT THIS HOTEL REFUSED TO RETURN OUR MONEY. It's totally unfortunate as we are not here for vacation but seeking asylum. Boy, this hotel must need every dime as much as we do. A partial return would have been better than nothing.

2/10 Poor

Price of the room is extremely expensive for what the offer, no breakfast, share bathrooms, the room has AC but the staff does not provide the controller. Room size is extremely small, the whole space is occupied by the bed, no room to even walk, it´s like a prison cell. Share bathrooms per floor, the room I was given had no windows, it rain that night and water drop into the bed.
