We chose this hotel because of a listing in the Lonely Planets guide. It is an overpriced dump - the room was the size of a closet. The fridge was broken and when I mentioned this at the front desk, the clerk said, ``It isn`t a fridge, it`s a mini-bar``. R-r-r-right - with a electric cord and a thermostat.
When I headed out the door with the electric kettle to find some ice in the neighborhood, the clerk forbid me to use it for that purpose - ``It`s for heating things`` he insisted using it for ice would damage it. He said, ``What do you want ice for?`` like ice (when it is in the 30sC outdoors) was an insane idea.
The breakfast included orange-colored soda pop or Kool-aid in lieu of juice, and stale sliced sandwich bread.
``Free parking`` means on the street, if you are lucky or aggressive enough to find a space!
The bathroom was clean, but the much-touted ``art`` does not begin to compensate for the inadequacies of this dump.
