          I'll be very brief on this one. This is the kind of hotel you're sorry you have booked, the moment you step inside. -Terrible Service -Doubtful cleanliness -Always-on heater ( It's useless to ask receptionist how to switch it off) -Super uncomfortable (and hot) rooms

          Why does this hotel exist? It should really be shut down and excluded from hotel websites / review sties. Even writing this review on it is a waste of time. This wouldnt be fit for an animal. Im sure there are rights us humans have for a minimum standard of living.
