All the things written in the bad reviews turned out to be true.
I think our overseas travel agent was compelled to book here through a chain operating in Asia. Those reviews that say the location makes up for it all are nonsense.
The rooms were dirty, not even vacuumed - loose debris on the floor. Bathroom - disgusting. Don't look under the sheets unless you have a strong stomach.
The south facing windows have gaps in the seals - letting all the sound in from the karaoke bars. Wear your ear plulgs if you want a good night sleep. Breakfast - a joke.
The staff said "we don't have a buffet breakfast, because not enough people stay here to warrant it" - ain't that the truth! The "a la carte" breakfast was worse than terrible.
Access - no vehicle access is possible due to nearby construction works at the moment (May 2014). So expect to drag your luggage over rough cobbled streets for a 5 minute walk.
We were booked in for 6 nights. One was enough. We had pre-paid our full cost of the accommodation, and lost one night to cancel the remaining 5 nights. It was worth it. We spent a bit more and are now at a perfectly suitable place - good investment.
If your travel agent recommends this place to you, have a serious discussion with them.
