Consider this: on arrival access to the hotel is partially blocked by street vendors who periodically are cleared out by the police. On checking in the staff is monosyllabic and perfunctory. Our room was on the 2nd floor...on approaching it we were aware of the darkness of the hallway, the grubby carpet and the faint smell of disinfectant in the air. On entering the room we noted the same darkness, the same carpet and window curtains worthy of the Addams family. The bathroom was large and modern and nearly as large as the bedroom, which contained a firm bed, suspiciously grey sheets and mismatched second hand furniture. Add to this a healthy dollop of street noise and what would you do? What we did was check out and go immediately to a modern 4 star which at the same price gave us all we might expect. As we checked out the only thing that interested the staff was that our bill was properly paid. Then - despite the persistence of sunlight - the door was locked behind us as we gladly walked away.
