Nice priced rooms with all facilities you need. Good shower, good WiFi. Close to city center with taxi/bus. Very little choice of food in the restaurant for dinner and poor quality of food. That they can do better you can tell by the breakfast, because that was wonderful. Lots of options, very fresh. Biggest downfall: a nightclub at the 8th...

Considering that I paid less than USD 40 per night, I shouldn't be expecting much. However, I'm disappointed with the conditions of the room. It was badly maintained. I understand that the hotel itself is dated, but I don't think it should look like a motel seen in Hollywood movies. The rooms are in dire need of refurbishment. Breakfast was...
