Go somewhere else or pay more for better
Very dingy and grotty I definitely won’t be staying again I found either tubs of Indian or sick was hard to tell on the radiator behind the curtain dripping on the floor. I though the window was open because they are so poor, room and building stinks of stale smoke and not very welcoming people work there. Compared to the last budget hotel I stayed at in this area this hotel was awful
