    Don't go there. Dirty room, dirty shower, dirty toilet. I wouldn't recommend this place to anybody. Very expensive for what they offer. Very old building with people living in the room next to you "hotel room". The only good thing is the location.

    I'm used to staying in hostels but this place was terrible. There was poor communication from the staff, as they explained about teas and coffees he mumbled something and sat back into the office and I never saw anyone again after 3 nights sleep there....More
