Hotel was fine, good value for money, free internet, rooms clean and comfortable, balcony, good shower, breakfast very nice and plentiful,near metro station and within walking distance to some of the sights and nice eating areas. Hotel staff was a mixture of downright rude or friendly, we found one of the men on reception very helpful and one of the bartenders very chatty and friendly but others couldn't care less if you were you there or not.
It is just a shame the area and neighbourhood is dirty, rundown and very unpleasant and scary people hanging around the street all the time. The very, very busy brothel (or ladies house as the bartender calls it) across the road probably doesn't help matters but kept the conversation going among the guests.
We missed having a restaurant in the hotel but the bar snacks were tasty and filled a hole. This was just as well as we were visiting during the strikes and riots and the hotel advised us to stay put and not venture out ,doors of hotel were locked at 5p.m. for our safety.
On the first day of our holiday my friend was standing out at the door smoking a cigarette when she was threatened with a loaded syringe by a junkie demanding money who thankfully ran off when she shouted on us to come out. Even although my friend was very upset and visibly distressed the staff chose to ignore the incident and offered no help or comfort at all.
This made us very wary of being out and about at night especially when there were no taxis operating.
Would we go back or recommend NO.
