I wish that the Pondersa had a dedicated bike room available as we had a bike stolen during our stay.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Kind of disapointed with our stay at this hotel. Our first impression of the room is that it was quite tidy and clean looking. However a few minutes after our arrival we discovered a couple of used condoms that were left stuck into the recycling bins from the previous occupants. This discovery made us worry about how well ( :/ ) this room was actually cleaned before our arrival. While there is a fan in the bathroom, there was no way to turn it on, making the room quite stuffy and humid after taking showers. The room has no AC and despite us visiting on colder days, the room got quite hot at night so keep that in mind for your visit. The parking was an extra 16$ a day and is located a 5 min walk away from the hotel which is not the most convenient. Overall our impression of the place would have been better without the used condoms that were left in the room for us to discover.
