The room smelled like mildew and was in pretty bad shape - very run down. The location of the hotel makes it very difficult to go anywhere to eat unless you have a car. My taxi driver from the airport told me not to walk around there after dark and it became clear to me that he was right. I didn't feel safe. The breakfast in the morning was pretty sparse and lame - consisting mostly of dried out danishes and watered-down *awful* coffee. I know bargain hotels and have stayed in many - but those usually cost around $40 a night and you at least know you what you're getting. For the $90/night this place was, which though I guess is cheap for the area, you'd just expect more, not stained wallpaper and a scary bathroom where the water barely trickled out and the showerhead reached my mid-chest. Pathetic. The room was on street level and there was a lot talking and noise outside at night making it even harder to sleep. I was truly miserable staying there and have never been compelled to write any kind of review (much less such a negative one) until now.
