Firts of all not all the bathrooms are available, many are under construction. Very strange people are booked there, the rooms are not clean and it is very cold. Overall it looks like a haunted place! Don't recommend it!

That is something to be mindful of one wants to book online. The hotel is clean and was not rowdy or crazy. My group and I had three rooms and all of us were... More
