It seemed such an inconvenience for the chap at the front desk to interact with anyone and the personal hygiene of some staff... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stopped at in my life! Food was terrible, room was dirty, stained carpets and the paint was flaking off the walls. Don't stay at this hotel you will be very disappointed.
