The minute you set eyes on this dilapidated,collapsing shack is the minute you will be welcomed to hell on earth. The exterior says it all : rusting windows,horrendously tacky neon signage and smoky,blackened windows. Oh, Where to even begin with this revolting dump? Cockroach infested rooms,flithy, unwashed, blood laced linen. A lingering, nauseating musty smell pervades every pore of this slum. Floors squeak suspiciously and threaten to crack open as you walk on them. Bathrooms are health hazards, mildew and mold fester in every crevice. EVERYTHING is virtually coated in bacteria. Piles of ancient dust layer every surface. The carpet reeks of a sharp, vinegary smell. The same carpets appear to be decaying, and any type of pathogen could leap out of it and burrow into your feet, so wear thickly layered flip flops. There is a microscopic television from 1771 available.If you can bear to lay your hands on the filthy remote, you can look forward to a wide selection of ghost channels featuring noise and black and white dots. When you have had enough, rude staff holed up at the reception desk(surrounded by copious pots of plastic flowers) will interrogate you and demand proof that you are indeed staying at the Allen Lee.
If you are brave, I dare you to take the elevator. In addition to being as filth smothered as the rest of the building, it also boasts a selection of grimy ,broken mirrors and protruding shards of glass. Caution-Don't touch it lest you slice off a part of your hand.
I had booked the Allen lee for two nights, but could only barely survive one. I moved out immediately the following morning and went to stay with a friend.
They however serve complimentary breakfast, which is the opposite of a compliment. I would not eat anything produced in this cesspool if I were you. Be warned!
