I read about some negative comments about this hotel before, and I booked anyway, as I know that people write a negative review once they find one thing they don't like, and people don't write a review at all when everything is good.

Bad and dangerous place! Rooms with no fresh air and surprise surprise – no windows are opening! We found: noisy old conditioners, old and stinky bedspreads, old hard with no shape at all pillows, bathroom with missing and broken tiles.
