I would rather sleep on the streets of the Getsemani than stay there another night. To begin with, I made a reservation over the phone and both the room and price agreements were not upheld. The rooms are cramped and grungy and the shower curtains should be bathed in bleach. The wifi only works if you are standing in the lobby. The fan was rickety and squeaky and made tons of noise all night. The ceiling was literally patched up with bandaids. The noise from the street and surrounding clubs was so loud that coupled with the fan we got the worst nights sleep of our lives. Unless you are partying so hard that you are just going to pass out wasted somewhere, don't stay here. There are tons of better options around for a similar price.
