    I was surprised that actually the building of hotel was built in 1915, more than 100 years ago. Great!

    When we arrived for our prepaid booking our two single room were not 'on the system'. The reception tried to get us to share a room. When I said no it was suggested that maybe my 'husband doesn't trust me? A room was 'found' in another hotel for me and my nephew was given a room in Velvet. Although the other hotel was fine we were unable to have breakfast together. Overall unsatisfactory..

    This is the worse place I have ever been. It is in an abandoned building, we had to use a makeshift elevator to get to it. The reception desk is made of a small person sitting next to small table and a copy machine. As soon as we entered the dirty rooms, they chained the entrance door, downstairs and put a large flower pots behind our doors, we could not get out. We did find a new hotel through Expedia. We did explain to hotel sonesta that we did not feel save. To come get us. Of course, we gave the address, the cell phone number for velvet. The person who came for us spoke their language, so they unchained the door to let him in, and he came to our room to rescue us. We were all terrified, we were all wondering, what could have happened if we did not leave. In my opinion, this place should never be used, it should be removed from Expedia’s list
