I was appalled with the attitude of the guy at the reception. Wanting a room for the night and was told no viewing of rooms after 17h00 Went back next morning and just the reasoning and attitude of the lady at the receptipn was not on. Arrogant staff , will never ever go there ever

Can live with the bare minimum but the overwhelming smell of urine was beyond disgusting. And then the 'late night activity' - sounded like a brothel after 12:00 - changing shifts and partners - disgusting is not the word. Mind blowing that you can actually run such a low class establishment is such an ideal location.The investors should be 'proud'... More

Please be careful with your posessions here. Best to avoid. Lock up ALL your belongings even if it is not worth much. My perfume disappeared and the staff's got a could not care attitude. True you get what you pay for!

A nice place, gives you a beautiful view of nearby hill and the city. From here you can easily go all directions and back without problems. But you can't invite friends, only guests are allowed in. Very excellent accommodation but No meals as of April 2015. Maybe they provide meals now, not sure.

Being left with two hours to wait with a guard after all its a budget hotel So it was understanding. Walking into my room it was tidy and tidy not spacious but it did... More
