The hotel is faling apart, it has been taken care over the years. The TV did not work and they didn’t do anything about it. I asked for a double bed and got a two beds room and they couldn’t solved it either. It was poorly clean. The sealing of the bathroom had the lays of paint falling down... it was horrible! Unfortunately I don’t have photos but I stayed at room 201.
