Please don't even consider staying here! The SMELL was horrifying. Grime can hide from the eyes but not from the nose!!!
The area is dodgy and rundown. Not safe to walk around at all. The pavements outside were crawling with crowds of howling people.
The hotel is badly run down and needs a major overhaul. In fact to get rid of that smell it would probably need to be completely gutted.
Once we were in our room we managed to make alternative accommodation plans and THANKFULLY got out of there within fifteen minuets!
