We booked rooms at this "hotel" based on the pictures we had seen in a tourist guidebook. We had been booking our hotels and guesthouses this way all week with great results. Unfortunately, Hotel Bru was a huge disappointment for us. When we pulled in, we could tell that this wasn't going to be like the other places we'd stayed. We even discussed not going in, but thought that would be too rude. At the front desk, we were greeted by a very potent smell, and the first rude person we had encountered in the five days we had been traveling around the country. We then proceeded up to our rooms, where we discovered dirty carpets and slanted roofs that made it impossible for two 5 ft 4 women to stand up straight. We also found that the one shower was not draining. The only bright spot about this place was the breakfast, which was very nice, but did not make up for all the other shortcomings. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. There are other, better options out there, do not stay here.
