Stayed here with my family in July. The location is good, opposite a prominent open space of a park. But thats where the good part ends.
The bed had bugs in it which were bad enough to give us some very nasty rash which took more than a week to wear off!
For breakfast - the only thing they prepare is toast. You have to wash it down with some old dodgy looking cornflakes and milk and some fruit. Not good but it gets worse. The apple I took had a worm in it and the banana was stale.
The room furniture was a collection of different types of wood. Basically a mash up of whatever they could get their hands on it seems. Very very functional. The bathroom was so small that I could only shower one shoulder at a time!
For service - they would not carry your luggage, which would not have been bad if they had a lift in the hotel (they dont).
Avoidable at all costs.
