This is one of the worst hotels I've stayed in in my life.
The day after we arrived, they commenced a full renovation of the room next door to us. That meant that we were breathing in fumes of wet paint and toxic-smelling paint stripping chemicals. We requested to change our room and they informed us that they were fully booked but could give us a "un-renovated room". Since the fumes in our current room were out of control we decided to switch to the "un-renovated room". Turns out that there was something wrong with the plumbing in this new room (which they didn't inform us of in advance). The second night in the new room, the pipes starting smelling like an open sewer. Not only that but the carpets and bed linens had a nasty smell. Even though we had a booking for a full week we decided to leave the hotel 2 nights and move to another hotel next door.
The breakfast was also absolutely awful. There was a big platter of baloney (or spam? not sure?) and some greasy croissants among other things.
In short, stay away from this hotel.
