Hotel is very old and amenities date back to the 1960’s. Shared bathrooms which should be made very clear so that this cannot be overlooked when booking. Reminiscent of student accomodation back in the 80’s. Although the cheapest place available at the time it is still grossly overpriced for the quality of the accomodation. On a positive note I didn’t see any vermin.
