This has to be one of the biggest mistake I ever made in choosing a hotel. The hotel even lacked basic ventilation and the rooms had a terrible smell and the staff was hostile and threatening. The complaints were dealt with threats and I choose to cut short my vacation despite having paid complete amount in advance. Found the place... More
