DO NOT STAY HERE. This hotel was disgusting, not to mention a death trap. After booking on wotif website the photos of the hotel looked really nice but were nothing compared to when you get there. As soon as we arrived there were problems with our check in and they had no idea what rooms we were in. I was with my partner and a friend and we had booked 2 apartments. The descriptions said 2 'luxury apartments with balconies'. After meeting with the manager who spoke English he admitted that no rooms in his hotel had balconies! After 15minutes of confusion we finally got a key that said rolls royce we were taken to a large room with 2 bedrooms and large bathroom however the room had the most disgusting musty smell, there were cracks in the jacuzzi bath, cracks throughout the bathroom, fingerprints on the mirrors, the tv didn't work, the walls were lined with fur! It looked like something out of a seedy strip club, there was no way we were staying there. We requested a change in rooms to a more 'normal' room. We got given the silver room which was slightly better but the shower didn't work, and the wallpaper was peeling and in much need of an upgrade. The second night of our stay the 3 of us got in the lift and it broke down on us, luckily the boys could pull the doors open and we managed to jump up back on onto our floor. After failing to find the stairs on our floor we called to reception who informed us there were no stairs!!! What a disaster we were locked on the 5th floor of this disgusting hotel. After many calls down to reception it was clear they could not get up and we could not get down! There was a diagram of the layout on the wall which showed there were stairs however the door to these 'stairs' was padlocked on our side! We decided we were getting out of this absolute hell hole and broke down the door which lead us to a dark unfinished staircase which eventually lead us to the back entrance which indeed looked like the entrance to a seedy strip club. The only saving grace was the manager was apologetic and could speak English, however I do not recommend anyone stay in this death trap, it was definately a scary experience and I still can not believe how disgusting the rooms were and nothing like they look like on the different websites (agoda, wotif, last minute).
