Im shocked this is even called a hotel. My friends and I stayed here as we was looking for somewhere cheap to stay whilst on a weekend break and thought a hotel would be a little nicer than a hostel. Where not relatively fussy but didnt expect what we walked into. The receptionist was rude and basically trying to rip up of charging us more than originally booked and then told us to speak to the manager in the morning ... SURPRISE, when we asked for the manager the following morning the other receptionist said that the manager would not be in today? SHOCKED, not?
The room was filthy, the laminate floor needed a good mop, there was damp all on the ceiling, mould in the shower and graffiti all over the wardrobe and walls. We booked an en-suite but yet are toilet was along the corridor so we had to share with others who was banging on our door all throughout the night.
To get to our room we had to walk up 6 flights of stairs which your feet don't even fit on the step and there is NO lift. It's a joke I don't know how health and safety let them get away with it. The wires in the room are half hanging out and the TV is half off the wall. The shower which was in our room, the door to get into the shower is see-through glass? So everyone who you share the room with can see you showering?
They gave us hand towels instead of bath towels?
One morning the receptionist was ringing our room at 6am non stop until we answered telling us our taxi was here? We didn't order a taxi, the fool just woke us up.
Also make sure if of go take your own hair dryer, the one they have in the room isn't worth drying your hair with.
If you are looking to book here, id make your stay more enjoyable and go elsewhere. We had other friends staying n a hostel in the red light district and they said there's was fine. Don't be fooled by the hotel in the name, this is not a hotel.
