This was such a horrible experience I don't even know where to start. First we are greeted by a bunch of motorist outside asking us for money the minute we get out of the car. When we walked into the lobby there were at least 3 street dogs laying on the floor, very disturbing since these dogs did not look like pets. There were also locals(sweaty) sitting in the lobby hanging out with the receptionist. The whole aura of the place is just very dirty and unsafe.
We were looking forward to jumping in the pool and just relaxing but to our surprise the picture of this pool could not be farther from the truth. The water was BROWN and the pool walls well all stained. If you look carefully at the pictures you can see they tried to cover it up. DONT be fooled! The hotel was empty and they gave us a room so far we couldn't even remember the way back.
The rooms were small, dirty, smelled bad(humidity), our TV and AC in both rooms didn't work. The lights went out at night on our way to our room and there were no back up lights. The room had no screen protectors so you couldn't open the balcony and it also connected to all rooms on that floor.
We were denied a cup of ice, there was no one from management available other than a "security guard" after nine.
So many things went wrong I'd be here all night. We got up and left first thing in the morning since we almost got robbed too in front of the hotel. Basically DONT GO THERE!
