This hotel was sold to us as part of a package booking including flights. Upon arrival we were shown the double we booked, which was very small. We had to pay the same price again as the original booking (roughly) to upgrade to a good sized double. There was a discrepancy between their lower estimate of what we'd paid originally, compared to the actual price paid, but this may be because the travel company took a big cut. The hotel had a strong sewage smell downstairs though luckily not affecting the rooms. There is a building under construction next door. The staff were reasonably accomodating as long as we paid the extra money, though not overly friendly. The room was basic but plus points were a large bed which actually was comfortable and a largish bathroom space with window, which you certainly don't get everywhere. OK for a night or two if you pay top whack for a superior room (expect them to ask for more), but there were much better looking places nearby...just have a wander around the adjoining streets!
