Lost my reservation and charged the most on tours
Claimed they did not have my reservation and blamed it on They apologized and found me a room at a neighboring hotel (no AC even though I paid for AC) and promised that they'd give me a deal on tours. So fine cool at least i had a room, right? Well THEN they rip me off on tours!! I got quotes all around town and they quoted me higher than everyone!!!! I regret being so nice to them, I should have demanded more. Very disappointing

Very basic room
Very basic hotel in a great location next to restaurants and shops. Wifi was spotty and we didn't be have hot water. Be prepared for loud music coming from the bar all day/night long. However, the front desk was really helpful with booking tours.
