We ordered double room and received single with 2
Location, garden, historical house
We ordered double room and received single with 2 pillows and two sets of toiletries. The bed was very small (140X190), There was only one chair in the room, and one chair on the balcony. There was no space for Luggage at all. I had to put it in the bathroom. There was no bath tube. Between the bathroom, toilet and the room had no doors or partitions. When one of us went to the toilet, the other had to go out. Bedside table, too, was only one. Breakfast is very poor.
