WORST HOTEL STAY EVER. COULDN'T LEAVE FAST ENOUGH!
I waw given bug spray by the front desk when I told them there were bugs in my room. The A/C didn't work. No attempt to correct it, or move my room. Please stay away. Wifi doesn't work. At all. I compare this hotel to a motel 6 in the U.S. please do yourself a favor and stay away from this hotel. Breakfast is horrible. Customer service was horrendous. They threatened to call the police if we didn't keep quiet abotu the bug problem. In fact, we were given, bug spray to kill the bugs in the room. Toilets, don't flush, and no working drain in the shower.

Dead body smell hotel
They said wifi available not true, you have to pay for some spotty service which is not worth the cost. Hotel smells like a dead body when you walk through the halls. Horrible advertisement of a 4 star. Don't go to this hotel

Not so tourist friendly hotel....
This hotel only had great location. Apart from that, there was nothing good about this hotel. Hotel checkin was at 1:00 pm, but we arrived an hour ahead, So we waited till 1 (Got lunch in the meantime). When we came back to get the keys for the room, the receptionist (who aren't as welcoming, as they should be) said that someone is still cleaning the room, they made us wait for another hour, yes another hour. It was just soo annoying. When we finally get into the room, the room floor was dirty, with dust everywhere and AC wasn't working either. Next day when we went for breakfast (which was included in the stay), it was shocking to see what they served. All the croissants were stale and scrambled eggs were as if they were cooked yesterday. That was probably the worst breakfast during my trip. Thank god, there was a small bakery shop down the street which has awesome bread and pastries. Will never ever stay in this hotel and recommend any one.
