not quiet, not clean, not nice”

cheap and friendly staff

the walls feel like of paper because it's super noisy at anytime, even if you sleep at the back of the hotel. they don't give you bed sheets, only a blanket (not very higyenic). there is no food at the hotel, and nowhere really nearby where you can eat. the area is not safe at night, so be careful!

Sconsigliato vivamente”


Posizione scomoda rispetto al centro, camere piccole, pulizia inesistente. Durante il periodo del mio soggiorno, non è stato mai cambiato l'unico asciugamano, la camera non è stata mai pulita, il letto con il solo copri materasso, la porta della mia camera non si chiudeva, inoltre vi è un via vai di persone fino a mattina presto..... Sconsigliatissimo!
