Thank goodness I only had to stay here for a single night.
Just because I was a solo traveller paying for a budget room does not mean I deserved to suffer. I was greeted coolly when I told the receptionist that I didn't have the exact money. What kind of hotel does not keep any change at all at their reception desk?
My room was directly outside the breakfast/seating area and thanks to thin walls and a flimsy door, I heard every conversation and scrape of furniture both in the evening and early morning. Pair this with a thin mattress and I did not sleep well.
My room had a mini fridge which was not plugged in and filthy on the inside. I opened a door to what I assumed was a balcony only to find what looked like a large boiler and no floor.
The A/C unit was noisy and I woke up to find it had leaked water all down the wall and onto the floor.
The bathroom was filthy and desperately needs updating. For some inexplicable reason whoever had prepared the room had left the toilet brush in the actual toilet.
The room was dark, not helped by dirty windows. Breakfast was spartan, the wifi was unreliable.
The only redeeming feature of this hotel is the central location, mercifully I couldn't hear the busy main road from my room.
The photos of the double rooms on here make it look so nice, what a shame that solo travellers are apparently treated like second class citizens.
Avoid at all costs.
