We booked for three nights but left after one. The room was tiny, furnished with junk that would not have fetched $50 at a flea market and the bed was as hard as a board. Mould grew between the bathroom tiles The so called terrace had no view and was furnished with junk. The whole place is filthy and smells of cats throughout and worse. The vaunted restaurant is simply dreadful. Mostly it is closed with unlaid tables,The few that are used are crowded into one windowless corner. Although we had booked to eat we took one look and ate else where. The ceiling of the restaurant is filthy. The waiter station was piled with rubbish. The breakfast is thrown on tables with little to no attempt at presentation. The waitresses "uniform" was old and stained. The hot food such as it was bacon egg, tomatoes was all piled into one hot dish and looked totally unappetising.
Before you enter this place check the state of the menu boards outside. Their condition should tell you what the rest of this place is like. A classic tourist rip off joint. Avoid.
