It started off well, with the entry code working and the key as promised placed in the safety box. This place is old and dirty. The rooms are small but fine for an overnight stay.The odd case of lights not working in the bathroom, a big hole in the curtain is hardly something that would concern a guest. However, no hot water in the morning before check out and no staff to help you with it, baffles me. We called up the emergency number to be told that the plumber was on his way and the problem should be sorted in 2 hours. After 2 called up the number again, and the person decided to ignore the calls.What a joke!! Do not stay here, if you have a few pennies extra and can afford a place just down the road. There are plenty of options in the same price range. Another example of a hotel/apartment relying solely on it's location as their USP.
P.S: There is a bar/restaurant right below the building and you will be woken up at 6 am on your holiday to the sound of workers rattling away the beer bottles in the garbage bin.
