I am currently writing this review at 2.00 am at this hotel. We have seen 4 bed bugs so far crawling up the walls and I'm sure there will be more. We are on a school trip and are partaking in many activities throughout the day but cannot sleep due to the fear we will be bitten. We cannot complain...

BED BUGS BED BUGS. Hotel is very old and out dated. If you don't mind bed bugs and a out dated hotel then this place is for you. Also very loud at night. Bathroom was very smelly and did not flush very well.

Don't stay here. Extremely dirty and disgusting place. We had bedbugs, mold in the bathroom, stains of blood on towels, dust everywhere and dirty walls in the room. When we told the manager about it, he got really upset and was rude. I have stayed in basic places in Southamerica and Asia but this is the worst and we had...

We were told the room was not available that day but that they would upgrade us to a larger room than what we had booked and with en suite bathroom the following day. The guys at the...

We had 2 different rooms and in both of them there was bed bugs. Otherwise it was a decent hotel and good breakfast. The hotel manager was very rude when we informed him about the bed bugs. He told us that those insects were not bed bugs amd we had brought them in our room in shoes :D but it...

I read many reviews about this hotel AFTER having booked. Had no time to read them before. Anyway, the room I have got was OK, the breakfast has been pretty busy with a crowd of people, but the staff could manage the service. It was ok. The price was incredibly convenient. I think they miscalculated. I do not think they...
