I'd have rather slept on the street than waste my money sleeping here. The window was broken, the doors didn't lock, the bed linen was filthy and the walls had holes in...not to mention the thick grime on the shared shower. I wouldn't go back here even if someone paid me to.

This hotel should be bulldozed down to the ground. The room actually had a shower cubicle in the middle of the room, no privacy what so ever. Shower wasnt used as it was stone cold and you were lucky if a few dribbles of water came out. I would have rather slept on the street than in this hotel. Worst...

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL. That was a mistake staying with some friends for a work night out mid week. When we all left the following morning, everything was fine until I received an unexpected email later that day informing me that I was to be charged for damage to a room door. The hotel debited my bank account...

Eight of us stayed here last night I cannot even describe how horrible this hotel was. To start it was down a dark back ally. Everything is tired and falling apart! Our room had holes in the doors. The bathroom was filthy, the shower still had someone else hair in it! Do yourself a favor and go round the corner...

I booked this hotel to break my journey home on a business trip, I arrived well within the alloted check-in period to find the entrance down a awful side road, the door was locked with an intercom to get through to reception, I buzzed for five minutes and didn't get a response. At this point I gave up and went...
