When we arrived at the hotel the staff was waiting for us and we got checked in right away. We booked the deluxe room but there was no refrigerator or safety box... More

Firstly,... More

It had a bar and restaurant, air con and was superbly decorated. I paid 39$ for a room and breakfast here. It has... More
