Made a reservation online. Arrived at the hotel to check in and the front desk agent Mohammed said that he was unable to take the security deposit from my card. Odd!30 minutes before, reservations.com was able to take the deposit for the room on the same card. Interesting. I called my financial institution and put the call on speaker so that the front desk agent Muhammad could be privy to the call. It is only after Muhammad heard the bank representative say that their is no block on the card and that it must be a problem with the hotels terminal that he attempted to take the deposit again and miraculously this time it went through. Hummm? The elevator was out of order. Strike one. The room was the size of a small closet. Strike two.The floor as well as inside the room smelled like cigarette smoke. strike three. I went back to the front desk and asked to cancel my reservation and demanded a refund. As of this post I am still waiting on reservations.com to apply the refund to my account. Don't come to this dump of a hotel!

Beware of this hotel I booked a night January 13 and when I checked out later that night because I wasn’t satisfied with the stay. I ask about my security deposit of $100 and the gentleman at the front desk told me it will take 2-8 days depending on the bank you have. I have yet to receive it back when I call to ask about it no one picks up the phone.

Do not stay at this hotel! I booked a stay here through Hostelworld, a third party service I have used for years without any problems, where you pay a small fee for the booking and then pay the rest of the amount due to the hotel when upon arrival. However, when I arrived at the hotel, I was informed that someone who I have never met before in my life had stayed in a room under my name a week previously and that they had charged my credit card without my authorization for the stay. The person at the front desk was incredibly rude and unsympathetic, insinuated that I was lying about not knowing the person who stayed under my name, and kept insisting that it must have been an error through Hostelworld's system. He also gave me a whole lecture on using "unreliable" third party services and that I should be more careful with my credit card information and then told me to book another night with no guarantee of a refund for the fraudulent night, which I did because I had no other place to stay on such short notice. I then called a Hostelworld customer service agent who was very helpful, concerned, and confused about the whole situation, as they told me that the reservation was in place for the correct date and that any change after my initial booking would have had to been made by the hotel. They also offered to speak directly to the manager on my behalf to clear the matter up and advocate for my situation. I was told the manager was out and would contact me in my room later that day, which of course, she never did. I was also told she would be in the next day, and she was not. A few days after I left the city, I was finally able to get in touch with someone by phone (not the manager) who told me they would issue a refund for one night within 14 days, which I still have not received. Furthermore, I have had to deactivate my credit card because a small Amazon charged popped up a few days later that I had not made so it is absolutely certain that someone stole my information, whether it was the hotel or the person who stayed. Since my stay, I have read many other reviews stating claims of fraud, so am convinced this is the fault of the hotel, not Hostelworld, since everyone I interacted with was being so defensive and suspicious in every encounter. The actual room was fine, but absolutely do not stay here under any circumstances, as this has been the worst hotel experience I have ever had and made my nice vacation weekend a huge headache.

So the wanted poster on the front door welcoming guest should have been a clue. The room was tiny, fair on cleanliness. The real issue came a week after my stay when my credit card was hit for over 1,000 in fraud. The only place I us d it in over a month was here. Don't stay if you can help it.
