This is a tired, old hotel that badly needs updating. Rooms are small and cramped, furniture looks at least 20 years old. Beds are somewhat small, and on the hard side. Shower space and bathroom in general are small, with thin towels, and one dispenser for soap/shampoo. The doors in the room had big scratches, and in general place feels kind of downmarket. Be warned, there is no A/C, and the room felt warm and stuffy even on cool May days. Elevator is ancient, and they still have real keys with a half-pound room-number weight attached to it.
In fairness, the place also has some strong positives, including superb location close to all the main tourist attractions, clean, a very good breakfast buffet, fast Internet, and genuinely caring and helpful staff. If only somebody is willing to invest in the property, this could be a great little hotel.
