First of all its on a 6th floor, I contacted the hotel in advance and texted to say of our late arrival, we turned up to find the doors chained shut and locked, door bell didn't work and no answer on the phone, eventually a group of other customers arrived and let us in. The room, all i can say is bed was nice, we booked, private bathroom, with shower and toilet, what we got was a seperate walled area in our room, not even connecting to the exterior walls, dirty toilet, and shower, sink was off the wall, the mirror had been taped to the wall, the balcony doors would not shut properly, electrics on show on the ceiling, dirt and dusty fire place, and a rather quick decision to say tomorrow we rebook into a different hotel. The fact we were locked out was rather distressing due to the protests, and even late in the night, bricks were being thrown between to crowds of locals, the balcony where people were to have breakfast did look nice, but the lift was not secure, in the way there was no protect from falling out, as no doors for the lift cabin itself. Very poor hotel and would not recommend, even on a very small budget.
