The room was clean, that's the only good thing I can say about the place.
On arrival the deal I'd booked was not recognised by the reception staff who were reasonably polite but surly. The pricing mix up was resolved when I showed my confirmation but then they said they wanted paid up front! Extraordinary. I've never come across this before. They told me it was company policy but it was not in my confirmation. I ought to have left there and then but was in a hurry to get to my destination.
The rooms are basic beyond belief but were clean. At night the noise was incredible, revellers outside roaring until 4:00am!
This is a worn out, shambles of a hotel. Spare yourselves the agony and choose somewhere else.
