“Awful experience in a non-hotel/BB”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

This is not a hotel, but just two rooms in a property with no reception, no in dodgy socak (little street) of the main road.
The owner and his son who were supposed to be the hoteliers tried to communicate with us through google translate, but they were friendly enough to offer a coffee and some water on the first day. There was no remote control to switch on the air con. There is no room service 24/7, there is no a la carte restaurant nearby, no toiletries, and it was extremely noisy as the rooms overlook a busy commercial street.
The arrangements to be picked up from the airport were stressful as you have a driver who does not speak any English, and keeps calling people for the directions.
If you are a female, I would strongly advice you not to staying at this place. My impression was that this is an illegal premise.
