This hotel must have hired and excellent photographer as the pictures do not live up to the actual hotel.
On our arrival day, we were greeted by a receptionist who did not seem very friendly and did not welcome us in any way. She was quite direct and only gave us our room key and sent us on our way.
We went to the room which was 26 on second floor. The room was horrible. It was small, very outdated with 1970's curtains. There was one chair and one dressing table. There was no tea/coffee making facilities and no fridge. There certainly wasnt any fruit or water as suggested by the photographs. There was only one power point. There was also only two small pillows provided.
The bathroom was also outdated and the tows were old and stained.
There was no air conditioning and on reading their booklet it said it was available upon request. I went to reception and asked for an air con unit. I was told I should have asked for air con when booking the room. I was given an old fan that was behind reception.
A big problem for us was that the cleaner kept walking into our room without knocking. On the first occasion myself and my partner were in bed and I was awoken by hearing the door open, I could see her peek into the room. There was no apology. She did the same thing the next day. I complained at reception and the receptionist only reply was Oh, and again no apology.
The hotel also says that they have a bar, well they dont, they have a fridge where you can purchase some cans of beer from, they have no other drinks.
My advice is stay away form this hotel. I think for the price it does not offer value for money. I think you can get better service for similar price.
Dont be fooled by their website and pictures, its not true.
