The check in was not very friendly and she couldn't give us advice on where to eat. The room was very small and the fan was noisy as were our neighbours with their windows open. The bed was comfortable, but the hotel was down at heel and needs some money spending on it, to bring it up to snuff. No elevators for the disabled.
