1/5 Terrible

Business traveller
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The place was dirty and hygenic. I was given a room and there wasn't any bed available. All of the beds had clothes, blankets, pillows etc... on them. So basically they did not actually have room for me. I couldn't even get into the room as there were suitcases stacked up behind the door. I checked in and checked out twenty minutes later. The young women serving me was friendly enough but she did not really speak enough English to understand what I was saying.

Liked it was opposite a park Did not like that I was unable to check in until 5pm, place not cleaned properly, other guests being allowed to stay up drinking with loud music until late, broken power sockets not disconnected, no comfortable seats to relax in, fridges hadnt been cleaned out since mid May, no cutlery, bowls, plates, cups etc available in the kichen - had to buy my own, slat missing in bottom of the bed frame I slept in, other guests being able to set up a TV to watch soccer on the verandah outside my room at 1am, place in poor condition.

Terrible stay
Was a last minute booking and we thought it couldn’t be that bad.. it was! The place just felt dirty, the mattress was as hard as a rock and we left after 10 hours, didn’t even want to shower there. The only upside was the check on process was easy and the workers were nice
