Positive: the hostess’s mother greeted me warmly, offering water, coffee, and slices of cool watermelon on the hot day.
Negative: the description of this accommodation does not disclose that there is a dog. A very vocal dog. It barks a lot. And the establishment, including the guest room, smells strongly of dog. Also of cigarettes. Although I did not directly observe anyone smoking, there was an ash tray (empty) in the shared bathroom.
I could find no outlets in the room with which to charge electronics. I had to resort to an outlet in the shared bathroom, laying my iPad on a piece of furniture next to the sink. I was not comfortable with that, but there did not appear to be any other options.
The room has only one light source - a small goose-necked reading light next to the bed. When sun sets, the room is extremely dark except for wherever the light is pointed.
When I lay on my pillow, it smelled strongly of dog. On further observation, it was clearly quite old, very rumpled, had a hole in it, and did not appear to have been laundered in recent memory. I asked the hostess for another pillow case, but she did not have one. Instead, she put my pillow into what appeared to be a throw-pillow cover that was rough in texture and did not appear to be freshly, if ever, laundered. I covered it with my clothing as a barrier.
There were spider cocoons on the beams over the bed.
Despite advertising that there was wifi, no password was available until the hostess arrived home at 21:30 of my first night. Hopefully, she has saved that information for future guests, but it made me feel as though little thought had been given to accommodating paying guests. Upon arrival, no map or other guest services were offered.
The room, overall, felt grubby. I was paying €80/night, albeit during a festival when all rates are high, but in the real world this was a €30 accommodation.
