One of the worst hotels I think I've ever stayed in. Although it's cheap, it's very dirty. The wifi doesn't work in your rooms, only in public spaces. The bathroom was very damp and small. Breakfast was included but the restaurant is so dirty that it's actually quite uncomfortable eating there as who knows what the kitchen looks like! Also...

The best part about this hotel is that it is near hotel. Nothing else is even good. Rooms are just average and so is the service. There are so many good options for food outside that we can just avoid eating here.
