2/5

I rarely leave reviews. If you are looking for a cheap option and don't care about heating, or poorly maintained doors, then this is your hotel. The facility is very dated, I bet you the doors where not changed since the 50s. Air-conditioning/heating makes terrible sounds, staff tries, in some rooms the heating does not even work.
