Dirty side of town, far from old city, small rooms
Posted Nov 1, 2013
I was disappointed in how small the room was, and how dingy the hotel in general looked. The part of the city its in seemed dirty and especially scary after dark. As s a single woman, I was affraid to walk home after dark.
The old city was far enough away, like a 30 minutes or more hike to reach it. There wasn't much to see near the hotel, its in a dirty, very unclean part of the city. Everything that a visitor would want to see was at least a 20-40 minute hike, though dirty busy streets. Or a 20-30 shekel cab fare to get there.
The staff was nice enough, though when I would ask questions I was made to feel more like an aggravation than a guest. They never asked me how was my stay or how i was getting along in their city. Or any suggestions of places to eat or things to see or do.
There are hidden fees for telephone use.
The upstairs patio was dirty and furniture was very unclean, and there seemed be a room or an apartment out there as well so it was not very relaxing or comfortable to sit out there.
The air conditioner did not work very well, it was always hot, not even at a comfortable degree, I was so hot that even after a shower I would be sweating so bad I could not apply my make-up.
Unfortunately they would not refund my money so I could stay at a place I would be more comfortable at.
