Nightmarish hotel - I want my money back !!!
I book room in this hotel via, a few weeks ago and I requested that is important to me to have a window and private bathroom, also it was information that this room has a bathroom ! Unfortunately, in reality was completely different ; room was located in the basement with very small skylight, awful smell, absolutely not suitable to sleep in. Receptionist was not very helpful, manager was not there. I found that it was impossible to stay in this hotel. I left very disappointed and I had to find another place to stay in. I have to be reimbursed, as I didn’t stay in this hotel. Tried to ring to, but no respons ‼️‼️

Close it down
Awful needs to be shut down. The carpet was a sea of hair, never cleaned, Ever. Sick patch on the floor. Nail clippings stuck in carpet. Shower walls sticky unclean. A prison cell, not a room.

Just don't
1.5 days without hot water and electricity. Pubes in all our beds and neighbor. No toilet paper on the shared toilet, had to ask for it. Friend got his back injured due to the bad beds. No compensation was offered due to the lack of electricity and hot water. Just stay away from this place.

Description might be misleading
Overall it was fine. Just mislead by the fact that it was written private bathroom and toilet on my booking which is not actually the case. It was a shared bathroom for 3 rooms. The bathroom and toilet looked nice but unfortunately the other users do not keep it clean and spilled water all over the place. It was not very pleasant to use. It is also mentioned that there is daily house keeping however my room was not cleaned on the second day of my stay.
