More Of A Nice Hostel
Posted Oct 23, 2016
I travel often and have stayed in 3 star hotels- 5 star hotels. There are a few things that stand out to me when I go to a hotel. One is how friendly and knowledgeable the hotel staff is, two is the cleanliness of the room, three the comfort of the bed, four size of the room for location, and lastly five helpfulness of the hotel staff. This hotel lacked the friendliness in its staff, The Rooms were NOTHING I mean NOTHING Like the photos online, They were extremely small, smaller than my tiny new york apartment closet. When I showered (Cockroaches)were coming from the drain, the breakfast in the morning was small and covered with fruit flies I got food poisoning from the breakfast. The beds were rock hard and sheets were the blankets, they didn't even offer a heavier blanket. I was so repulsed by the cockroaches I asked my husband to book another hotel at a loss because who knows if there were any more bugs in the room maybe in the beds who knows. The hotel fought us tooth and nail on a partial refund but in the end we got it. Expedia was not very helpful in this process making me a 4 month pregnant women even more stressed out. Moral of the story if your young you don't mind a hostel style atmosphere and mediocre food this is your spot. If not try any other hotel in the area the Inbal, Leonardo, something other than this place. May I also add it is in a really seedy area with poor lighting. Be wise in your hotel decision its worth it to spend the extra money.
