Beware of this hotel. The hallways consistently smell like weed and the establishment is occupied by some unsavoury characters. The building is severely neglected and we no longer use the dodgy elevator due to its poor condition and unpredictable behaviour. Also the bathrooms are extremely dirty, the dirtiest bathrooms I have encountered in any hotel or hostel. On top of that I had my clothing stolen from the laundry. When I inquired with the manager, who spoke poor English, about my stolen clothing she told me that the laundry/kitchen common areas are not safe, and yet they do not have any security cameras installed in the hotel. All of the above results in an environment that is neither clean or safe, so stay here at your own risk. It is certainly not worth the money!
