Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Nice place, the staff is friendly. I wouldn’t recommend staying here if your American because as soon as you walk out of the hotel you get harassed by people wanting money and following you around right away. You can get away, they follow you until you give them money and don’t take no for an answer.
