“Only downsides”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2010

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 1 night in June 2010. We were charged for the room what you would pay in a 5 star international hotel for 3 nights as it was during the World Cup. What really disgusted us most was the dirt and blood spots on the sheets. It seemed as if the sheets were not changed from the previous guests. The window latch was broken in the room so anyone could easily come in as it was in a dusty courtyard. There was no safe in the room. When we went to breakfast we had to sit at a dirty coffee table as there was no tables to eat breakfast at. My husband and I shared one glass of orange juice between us and shared one dry slice of toast. There were no other options and not enough cups to have a coffee or tea. There was ample parking for a car but this place needs to be shut down and renovated.
