But seriously... Who wants to be a spectator of this when you have to sleep in the direct surrounding? The area is, like others described it, very filthy. Drug dealers, prostitutes, homeless and smelly drunk people or all this combined in one or the other person are right in front of your doorstep. We didnt have any problems with them.... More

I arrived with my friend last week about 11pm and from the taxi we realized it was the worst decision we made. There where homeless everywhere, 2 guys smoking crack in the front door, we waited 5 minutes for them to leave to go into the hotel. There are stairs to go up to the front desk, that smell REALLY...

TERRIBLE PLACE with mean homeless people doing drugs on doorstep that screamed at us to get lost.... Had to literally push door open past them to get in. Staff speak poor English and they would not refund money so we could stay somewhere safer where we could actually get into a hotel without confrontation. WORST PLACE I HAVE EVER BEEN.... More

The room was VERY small, but we had a private bathroom. The neighborhood is not for delicate people - too many junkies and lunatics on the street, but they do not disturb you very much. The hotel is very close to everything you need - public transportation, supermarkets, shops, etc.

The area in which this 'hotel' is situated is horrendous. So many homeless people wandering the streets outside.

Paid for three nights and only stayed one, the day we checked out two men checked out of the hotel also as they... More

Terrible place in a really bad area! Everyone told us not to go out and walk the streets, there were shady people along the whole street before you get in and human dodo out the front that was all before entering the place. The strong smell of urine and three flights of stair before even getting the the reception was... More
