Having booked online before we arrived we were excited to have a free airport pick up which meant being able to avoid the chaos at the airport, however the driver was late and then expected up to pay him. Once we got into the hotel which was up a tiny alley way with two nicely placed urinals next to the entrance the owner was quite rude telling us we looked like crap and needed showers... by the time we got into our room we were already in a mood so the dirty bed and shower caked in rust and lime just added fuel to the fire.
We had booked for two nights and decided to stick with it... however neither of us has showers the entire time we were there.
The manager seemed to have more than one girlfriend staying in the hotel and each time we came downstairs he was with a different western girl. The place was noisy and dirty and the WIFI which was one of our main reasons for booking didn't work. The TV didn't work either.
The one redeeming factor was the great location in the heart of the tourist area.
