You are looking to that hotel? I suggest that immediately you look aside. I will do a quick facts and figures session. The personnel does not speak English. Some of the rooms do not have windows. The accommodation is announced at 14:00 but we got it 1 hour later after waiting from 8 in the morning. The room is 2...

This is hotel you should never visit. I don't recommend to even be in that part of town, it is really dirty. Main word is 'Cargo transport', so you understand what part of town it is. Hotel is old, dirty and rusty. We were lucky to get clean sheets but bathroom was so dirty although usable. Also there are cockroaches...

This has the be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Firstly, the man at reception didn't even bother greeting me when I arrived, he was rude and seemed to not care about his job at all. Furthermore he was chewing gum and smoking at the reception desk! Then, in my room I discovered a cigarrette burn in my...

It was the worst experience i have ever had in a hotel. The place is horrible right form the entrance where a disgusting urine smell comes from the bathroom. The rooms are a nightmare: dirty sheets, old furniture, bad smell, mold in the bathrooms and garbage in the bin. Breakfast was poor, we didn't have many options to choose from....

I"m not a picky person, and actually this the first time I've written a review and I'm doing so because I wish someone would have warned us. We picked this place because it was close to the ferry docks and looked ok. The room was disgusting - hair, bugs, marks and holes on the sheets and blankets, etc. The AC...
