Arrived early Sat afternoon to hear raucous noise from next door (sounded like football riot). We were told it was a church service - on a Saturday? Noise did not abate the entire time we were there. Took us to rooms out the back - 2nd floor, room covered in dust, bathrooms had chipped/cracked/missing tiles, heat was unbearable but no ceiling fans, pulled back cover on bed to find dirty sheets. Went back downstairs to complain, found that Reservations don't open on Sat afternoon and Reservations had the only phones that could ring out. Had to pay porter for use of his mobile phone to organise to get out group removed to a different hotel. Other that the porter, none of the staff were helpful, property is run down, in need of refurbishment, noise from next door appalling. Avoid this hotel unless you are a back packer on the cheap.
