Seriously you should already be looking for something else. This is a place in the ghetto where couples walk in off the street to have sex. You can get rooms in 4 hour blocks.
The guy at reception was drunk. Our room was basically a dungeon within the car park on the ground floor. A few metres from the street with no security between our room and massive cockroaches. No internet. Nothing. After much hassle and arguments we got moved to level 3. This room was almost as bad. It did have a mini bar stocked with condoms. We managed to call some people that we had pre booked a tour with in a few days time at 1am and they saved our arses. They called around town and found us a decent hotel and we got the hell out.
