I feel bad writing this review, because the staff was really friendly. But, the room we stayed in was terrible. It was very filthy. This hotel really, really needs a total refurbishment. Beyond that, some things that could be clean, weren’t. In some places there was dust buildup from what seems like years. The night table was stained and filthy. The shower had mould in it. The carpet was gross. The pictures speak for themselves. On top of that, the room was noisy to the point I woke up both nights I stayed there from other guests. I had to buy earplugs to manage getting sleep the second night (which failed because the earplugs fell out of my ear during the night). I’m glad I only stayed for two nights. The breakfast, which is included, was pathethic. Some yoghurts, cereal and slices of bread. That was about it. The toaster looked filthy so I didn’t even try the breakfast. The breakfast room was tiny. Also, there was just one power outlet in the entire room, at least from what I’ve found. In it’s current state, I really, really have to advise against this hotel. The location is good, the staff was friendly but the hotel itself is awful. Please, whoever runs this hotel, invest in a total refurbishment and get this hotel to a passable state because right now it is far from passable. If there isn’t any budget for a refurbishment, AT LEAST give it a total deep clean and clean the rooms properly. Whoever cleans these rooms does an awful lousy job at it !! On a more positive note, again, the staff was friendly and the bedding was clean.

The room was a bit dirty, but it was still nice. No bedbugs in sight which is good. The service was great, they were all very kind and I made sure to leave a thank you note! For the location, Google Maps, for some reason, took me to the back of the building so don't follow that entirely hahah! Overall, it was a good experience.
