Seedy neighbourhood

According to reviewers, this hotel is not recommended for couples or families. It is situated near to a red light district and rents rooms out by the hour in addition to all night. In addition, many guests say that the surrounding streets do not seem safe or welcoming to foreigners. They recommend this hotel only to those who are intent on saving money at all costs.

Not very clean

Guests say that this hotel does not offer accommodation that can be described as hygienic. They take issue with everything from the attention paid to the sheets and linens to the bathroom areas. Even the lobby is disappointing when compared to the advertised photos.

Poor facilities

Visitors say that this hotel could seriously improve its amenities and facilities. They note that the televisions and Wi-Fi are often not working at full capacity. Similarly, there are issues with bathroom fixtures and other standard amenities that are offered at the property. For example luggage storage is not possible.
