Had the unfortunate pleasure of staying at this 'hotel' recently - would not recommend anybody stay there. Dirty bed (i slept on my towel), rooms with no ceiling and gaps in the doors that every man and his dog can see through...... oh and safety deposit box out in reception that i couldnt fit my cat in. Forgot to mention anybody from the street can come and sit in reception area so everything is safe right? As for the rule of handing in your room key everytime you leave the 'hotel' - we werent even asked who we were when we came back in after being out to ask for our room key back, just gave our room number and hey presto the key was ours, no questions asked (this was from a different receptionist other than the one who had checked us in).
All of the above is a shame as its in a great location, but for a few dollars more its worth staying somewhere where you feel safe. Granted you will be out enjoying the city and only want somewhere to sleep but surely you also want somewhere safe and clean?
