I stay in B&B Hotel Cantanhede Coimbra following an event that took place in Figueira da Foz, around 20miles of distance.
Due to the fact that all hotels in Figueira were booked and the high demand because of the event, B&B Cantanhede decided to set the room price like a 5 star hotel near the beach.
I honestly understand the economy principle of supply and demand and how the market works, what I don’t understand is a hotel like this one can afford to do this!
The hotel is located in an isolated part of the town and has a great look and good parking places.
The moment you step in, you start to see your money go out off the windows. In fact you can have better stays in 2 star hotels.
This hotel was booked with 2 months in advance in a travel agency, I had the voucher in my hand, and the check in was a nightmare, because I had no reservation. The room was spacious but the bathroom was not clean and the toilet and bathtub were dirty. Bedside table with some kind of oozy and the bed sheets with bugs! Since I wake up without bites or blood stains probably weren’t bed bugs.
Breakfast very poor and without staff assistance.
Check out was the icing on the cake! In the reception was a young girl that didn’t looked at me not once, didn’t talk just nod and was all the time on her mobile phone checking the likes on her facebook photos.
Even if the hotel pays me to say there I serious doubt that I return.
