I have stayed at this hotel on various occasions over the years mostly for overnight stop-over en-route to other destinations. The place is quite basic and will suffice for a night or two (max). The amenities in the rooms are functional with TV and hot shower and simple bed. Nothing fancy. The breakfast is decent and can get you going... More
