We stayed in a spacious studio apartment comprising bedroom, lounge/kitchen and shoer/toilet room. Air Con was extra which we asked for but they were unable to get it working during our time there which made for uncomfortable sleeping!

I stayed here for a week and barely survived. The food is disgusting and often unidentifiable and either pink or grey. However the heinz soup is good. The rooms are awful you are given dirty towels and sheets if you are actually given any during your stay. We were lucky enough to have cockroaches on our last night. The staff... More
