    Good location with a great view, especially roof where you have your breakfast, you can enjoy a fantastic view. Big parking at front of main door.

    Breakfast was very poor, just a lot of bread and butter and jam. No vegetables, cheese, bacon. Very noisy. No chance to sleep well. Wake up hundreds time per night, because of noise.

    The view where pool located was great. Pool was good.

    The room, we were stayed, was awful. The doors are so old and broken, full of the gaps around, there were no possibility to close the doors in a silence way. Everybody were slam the doors, because there we no other possibility to close them, the sound of these slams was huge. Slams were all the time, at night in the morning, day time. There were a smell in all hotel, like smoke or untidiness. Breakfast with few types of bread and butter. Apples and oranges. The coffee machine was untidy, the coffee splits everywhere, the same as orange juice. The tray for the plates to serve, was smell so bad, looked like it was washed with an old rag. Won't recommend this place. The price was low, but services more lower.

    The fact we successfully left this property healthy!

    WE ARE APPALLED FROM THE EXPERIENCE IN THAT HOTEL!!! They must not call it a hotel ever!!! Honestly – a complete TRASH, NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY AND NERVES!!! We are a couple that is very positive and certainly not looking to write bad reviews. But Hotel De Gale was the biggest dissapointment!!! So disgusting facilities, awful hygiene, REALLY LOW LEVEL! The room was full of breaking down and old components, or missing ones. There were no shelves to put any luggage on anywhere in the room. Just one wooden foldable shelf and when we tried to use it, it was falling from the wall broken. Our luggage stayed on the floor. BED – BROKEN!!! It was collapsing and making annoying sounds all night. THE SHEETS WERE TORN with holes in them!!! THE BATHROOM WAS A NIGHTMARE!!! THE TOILET SEAT WAS BROKEN!!! When we were trying to sit on it, it was a very interesting stupid experience (you can imagine!!)!! The smell was unbearable! Then THE TOWELS WERE TORN AND WITH BLACK AND YELLOW STAINS!!!!!!!!!!!! They change towels every 3 days – on the 3rd day the “new” towels were DIRTY with stains and TORN again – could not believe my eyes!!!!! They were also not matching, from different sets! I have photos of everything to prove my words! A brown water was running from the tap (separate taps - one tap for hot water, one for cold). The bathtub was all peeled, the water in it could not drain in the canal, so it stayed up to our ancles. The blow dryer was not hooked to the wall, so when I tried to use it, I had to hold the whole composition!! Everything in the bathroom was Rusted, very Old!! The girls at the reception desk were not the most polite in the world! Their English was not excellent, but that’s not so important. Lastly, when you come up from downtown, you need to climb many stairs to get to the hotel, that’s because it is a hilly landscape. P.s. - the breakfast was a joke haha! We have never slept in a worse place than that!!!
