Free WiFi but, only 3 hours per 1 password, you need to keep bothering hotel staff for more, Location is good that is near metro but, its not a pretty area. The rooms are very old and low quality. Overall i think the value makes it worth a try.

When we got there, they pulled up my reservation but told me they didn't have the right room (there were 5 of us and we booked a family style 5 bedroom room) and they broke us up into two and three after much protest....even though...
