This is probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. They didn't even have an elevator. I mean, isn't that illegal?!? I had to drag my luggage up 3 flights of stairs, although the staff did ask if I needed any help. I had to use a key to get into my room which was very outdated and took a while since the door lock was installed backwards. The faucet on the sink was tricky, you turn it to turn it on, but you can just keep turning out, it never "catches" to turn off and the water splatters everywhere so you get the whole sink and toilet wet. The bathroom door was too large for the frame and never shut. The shower also didn't work properly, similar to the faucet. We were next to the stairway, so we heard everyone's rolly luggage clack all the way up the stairs. And the walls are so thin; we could hear every drunken person speaking outside the door. There is no window, but I have stayed at hotel rooms like that. Since there is no window, you rely on the lamps for light and one of the 3 lamps outlets was not working. The closet was small but decent. The floors creaked; I almost thought I would fall through the floors. Carpet looks like it will die of aids soon. And it would have been nice to have had a cup to fill with water from the crappy faucet, too. Very interesting experience overall.
