I had booked our room in early February 2018 for our stay in May. I gave cc information and was told they would be in touch closer to our arrival. I never heard from them again, so I contacted them the day prior to our arrival to verify the arrangements. I heard back the next day stating that yes, all was in order for our stay, however their credit card machine was not working and asked if we could pay in cash. I responded with a yes. When we arrived we were asked to give full payment for our 3 night stay. It totaled 510 euro. Fortunately, we had that much in hand. Never were we told that full payment was due on arrival. This is vital information to have.
Additionally, the walls were paper thin and the floors very noisy allowing us to hear more than we would have in a normal home. Showers were not allowed between the hours of 10 pm and 7 am. Again, this was not information given ahead of time. We had early tours planned and this was a bit ridiculous.
We were disappointed as The Asgard Guesthouse was recommended in your 2018 book and we have never been disappointed in your recommendations. The location was great allowing us to walk everywhere, even the train/bus stations, but there rules and hospitality was a bit lacking.
