Dirty hotel. Dirty linens. There was a used tissue stuck to the duvet & left over items by the previous guest so the rooms are not sanitized in between stays. Towels are stained. There is black mould and mildew growing on the curtains, on the windows, on the sills, in the shower,. Carpets are torn and worn. Lights are broken. Sockets are smashed. Staff are hostile. Noise is intolerable.

The position is the only thing good about the hotel. The room was assigned randomly at arrival and an argument was required to be assigned a more suitable room which looked nothing like the one booked online. The breakfast is an insult, worse that anything you could imagine, trust me, i have wild imagination. of course Covid-19 is to blame for everything nowadays... What do you expect though, it is cheap enough, and rightly so...
