There is a lot of Noise Around the Hotel

The Food is Bland and Repetitive

Guests reported that the food served at Vila Petra is quite bland and poorly-prepared. There is a lack of time and care put into the food and it seems like it's just slapped together in a hurry. Also reported was a lack of variety and the same meals being served every day.

Tired and Dated Guest Rooms

The guest rooms feature decor that looks like it's been there since the 1970's Guests also reported that the Wi-Fi doesn't work, the beds are uncomfortable and there is a strange smell.
