When we arrived we had to insist to be shown a room. We were told that this is not usually done but finally we could have a look. Happily - as we would never have stayed there, certainly not with our small children!
The room was on the 11th floor and all that was great was the view. The room was far from clean. The air in the room was smelly and hot, the walls had lots of traces of humidity, the airco was small, old an way too weak to provide fresh and cool air. There were small bugs on the floor and on the beds (no "classical" bed bugs we checked, also no such stains in the mattrass). The sheets were greyish and did not smell fresh though they seamed to have been washed.
The room and the hotel were extremely worn and you'd wonder if you survived the cracky lift and how long it would take till the whole building fell. The carpet outside the rooms was downright disgusting. In the rooms there was a tile floor.
The lobby did not look bad at all but as soon as you got into the lift you'd only hope to get out of the whole place soon.
We had chosen this hotel because it had got a good review in the Lonely Planet (2010 edition). Maybe the author should go there again.
