Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉Only 1 toilet cum bath for 7 people! Every morning and evening was a mad rush. A lot of flying insects (think they're called midges). Thousands of them everywhere. They seem to like the lights and will stay near the ceiling even when the lights are switched off. In the morning, we will find tons of them on the towels and on the floor. We are unable to open the windows. Not even a small gap. Furniture is dated. Beds are old and uncomfortable.
눇Lots of parking available opposite the apartment. Walking distance to main shopping/eating street.

눉A bit dated...photos on website definitely look better than in person. Missing floorboards in master bedroom and carpeted over...felt unsafe. Balconies uninviting...lounge very small if it is supposed to accommodate 8 people. Quite pricey for what it was. We only ended up staying one night.
눇Location was good. Clean and tidy property

눉Despite apparently having geothermal heating, the place was a little cool and the inside was very damp in the mornings.
눇Owner was very responsive, great location and a large property.
September 28, 2016
눉Seperate kitchen, dining and living room. Would be good if these areas could be opened into one area.
눇Plenty of room with all family members area of their own.

눉The thermal heating couldn't be turned up apparently so we had to use individual heaters. Made some rooms cooler than we liked. Some of the light bulbs had blown and needed to be replaced
눇Loved the location and facilities. Just wanted we wanted in the town.

눉Our car didn't fit in the garage, (was our car too big or the garage too small?) but that is a minor complaint. Found Ants on the kitchen bench but they were a minor inconvenience, we just had to remember not to leave food uncovered on the bench top. Although the information compendium said there were 6 TV channels available the only one worth viewing was a non English news channel the others were shopping channels. Please do not view the above criticism in a negative way as they were minor complaints which we overcome but one big issue was the large bedroom being invaded by Mosquitoes during the night, perhaps a can of insect spray could be made available and been of help to the other couple who occupied this room and prevented our female companion being bitten alive while asleep.
눇Received a text from owner / custodian as to where we could find the key to the apartment. Apartment was very clean, well stocked with crockery and cutlery, cooking utensils and ample beer and wine glasses more than enough for four people, freezer had trays of ice already filled for our use (something you seldom find is a freezer with ice already waiting for you). 2 minute walk to the heart of the city shopping and nightlife / restaurants / bars which was a very big bonus. Not usually a fan of over the bath showers (due to age and infirmity) but this bath was sufficiently low to allow easy stepping in and out, perhaps the supply of a rubber bath mat would have ensured further safety. Slight confusion when it come time to pay our bill but was soon sorted with a phone call to the owner / custodian.
