Don't waste your time, find somewhere else to stay, possibly a cardboard box. As it would be more luxurious! The staff haven't got a clue how to run a hotel, the police turned up on the night To question one of the staff as he had been accused of dodgy wrong doing. The rooms have had no repairs at all...

This is by far the worst excuse for a lodging hotel I have ever come across anywhere in the world. The attitude of the staff and management is disgraceful an they should be stripped of their license and never be allowed to operate as hoteliers again. Please take heed and avoid this dump like the plaque!
