Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disappointing - no hot water+ broken toilet and AC
Wholly disappointing stay. AC broken, toilet broken, no AC. “Joke” by owner on arrival that hotel was overbooked and that we would need to stay elsewhere - not appreciated when tired after 24+ hours travel. Unsafe area to walk back at night - advise to get a taxi.
Stayed 1 night in Apr 2019
