    We stayed in a very small room with gray dirty linens, very slow internet and a horde of ants. Ants were everywhere, in a bed, in our clothes. Breakfast and lunch were worst. Fortunately, we were only here one night. Don’t advise this hotel.

    Its the dirtiest place I ever stayed....all walls are dirty, in bathroom - hairs, towel dirty and aircon just not safe to use - it all in mold! Not recommend to anyone, for money they charge you can find much better place!
