Please don't chose this place, staff are rude and instead of being at the reception the guys are always drinking in the kitchen. The place is dirty and the bathroom looks like was never cleaned before.

The check in hours was 14:30-18:00 and not until 00:00 as was written on the website (booking.com) They asked for extra fees for linens,... More
