I choose this hotel just because of its location and after seeing its a star hotel price was really attractive. Little did I know this place would be a dirty, reeking of rotting sting and unfriendliest staff were to be the only memory I would ever carry of the place.

They were running out of glasses, spoons... More

One of the worst of the Hotel to Stay . Horrible house keeping and terrible staff. just grand entry and equally worst ahead to see. Shady rooms, smelly & dirty linens with not functioning Rest Rooms. Totally waste of money .
