          Great location but this is like a hostel. Tatty building, broken furniture, not a nice place to stay. The location, however, is fabulous! There are better hotels in this area at much the same price level, so I advise giving this one a miss.

          Why does this hotel exist? It should really be shut down and excluded from hotel websites / review sties. Even writing this review on it is a waste of time. This wouldnt be fit for an animal. Im sure there are rights us humans have for a minimum standard of living.
