The worst part were the bathrooms where you could barely move in the shower and there's no room to place toiletries. The rooms are fair and the service is also fair, but overall the hotel just not reflect the magic of... More

Terrible experience at the hotel, my sunglasses were stolen by the cleaning service, the staff was unkind and unhelpful, delaying the answers because they knew we had to leave with a group first hour next day. Apart from that, as long as I got in the room there weren't towels, the safety box didn't work, the tv, apart from being... More

Stayed here this past week and there is some needed improvements. The rooms are a bit older and could use renovations. The bathrooms were not bad. However, the location is not ideal although you can take a taxi or bus and it won't be terrible. Overall, not great but will suffice if you just need a place to sleep.
