Fire exit of room 3 and 4 is blocked by room 5. Floor of bathroom always wet; no wall plug in bathroom. Wall plug only available under the table: for shaving, or for, woman hairdrying, you have to creep on hands and feet. TV in rooms are without TV-signal. Old worn out window doesn't close normally. Dangerous way to rooms... More

Pictures on internet did not represent actual place. Never make a paid reservation without having actually seen the place, otherwise you will lose your money like happened to me. There is a reason for having paid reservations, get your money if you don't like it! Room was small, smell like mold, windows opened letting in mosquitoes. We walked out. I... More
