    Hi, get a taxi and let him ring the hotel and get them to meet you down the alley. You won't find it by yourself alone at that time of night.

    I don't remember if they offered it, but probably not because we didn't take it. It took us 4 hours to find the place,it's in the middle of nowhere even the cab drivers didn't know where it was 😂
