2/10 Poor

Avoid, avoid, avoid!
One of the dirtiest, most horrible hotel experiences ever! Room was filthy, corridor smelled of cigarettes and urine, toilet was dirty and the shower cabin full of mould. Absolutely disgusting and a complete rip off for what they charge. Staff were rude and completely unhelpful. NEVER AGAIN.

2/10 Poor

AVOID, avoid like the plague!
You could, actually, catch the plague in one of these rooms! This is one of filthiest, most disgusting hotels I have ever seen. And not only that: service was apalling too! I wouldn't know where to start, but I'll just say the hallways smell like cigarettes and urine, the shower is full of mould, the air conditioning covered in what has to be 10 years worth of dirt, the bedroom doors are broken and scratched. Seriously, the place is horrific. Take a look at the photos!

4/10 Fair

Réservation en urgence suite à une annulation de vol. Emplacement idéal pour découvrir le quartier. Hôtel vétuste. A notre arrivée les matelas étaient sur le trottoir. Personnel rustre et installations surannées.
