Mold in the bathroom. Filthy carpets. Noise all night long in the so-called quiet streets (trucks of some sort). The bed is split and hard as a rock.
The only positive is loads of tv channels. But you don't want to stay in the room to watch because it is so 1970s old and smelly.
I am eating the breakfast right now. It's awful. Fruit from a can. Instant coffee. Stale bread. If I had paid 1/4 as much for this place I'd understand, but this is ridiculous.
The worst is the cheapest internet here is $29 for 24 hours.
Tip: the starbucks just at the corner has free internet and actual real coffee.
I've stayed all over the world in hotels, including dives in the seediest parts of town and this is worse.
