From outside the hotel looks good, lobby is very nice. But as soon as you enter the room, it is ruins of the lives lived by the brits there. The room is spacious but all the furniture over there is crap and smelly. The bathroom had seepage all around, water leaked from washbasin, and from all the taps available there.... More
