This is not a hotel. It's a room in a dingy building which is also occupied by residents and businesses. The 'hotel' is a restaurant that opens at 11.00 a.m. Reception is a small desk in the corner of the bar that is never manned. The room is never cleaned or the linen changed. The beds are low and bad for the back. Our shower was broken, Hot water runs out. The toilet seat was broken. There is no bath. We were fleeced with two welcome drinks that actually were not free - they cost £20.00 and were supposed to contain three wine measures and two rum measures (we were not told the contents or amounts in advance). Basically, you are given a key to a room and that's it - there's no more contact with staff apart from when they try to coerce you into eating in the dreadful restaurant. You pay for the room in advance on the first day so there's no point complaining. They pretend they can't speak English if you try. Some of them work in several restaurants along the street and who knows where the food is actually cooked. Don't bother - it's terrible, I was given processed, over-cooked chicken - a dog bone would have been easier to chew. There is no phone in the room; no hair-dryer and the satellite TV doesn't work. The furniture is old and dirty. There was an old ball of chewing gum on my bed side table. It's noisy in the street and the adjoining walls to other rooms are so thin you can everything that is said and done so don't expect to sleep well. We didn't dare leave our bags on check out day (you vacate at 11.00 a.m.) because we were afraid they wouldn't be there when we got back. The staff are extremely rude and unhelpful. The only good thing you can say is the rooms are warm (but there is no air-conditioning so they are too warm at night) and there is Wi-fi. Otherwise - absolutely awful. We would never stay here again.
