I didn't have a choice, the hotel was booked by my friends.
When I unlocked the door, I was greeted with with messy unmade beds, overflowing trash can and a combination of a musty room smell and stale food odour. GROSS!
I went downstairs to the (unfriendly) reception to complain and she didn't even bother to glace up, just said that sorry, and radioed her staff to clean up the room.
Eventually 2 of my friends changed room with us (twin bed/queen bed reasons). Still, the floor mat in the room was stained brown with a small edge that is white. Didn't dare to take off my shoes, let alone allow my feet to touch the floor mat. Pillow was flat as a sheet of paper, bed had hair in them, and that was before I even sat down on it. The safe in the room didn't work (nor did the safe in the rest of my friends' rooms work either). The hotel website said coffee making service but trust me, you wouldn't even want to try. There is a dodgy lounge on the 2nd floor which started blasting disco music at top volume from 11pm onwards all the way till morning 5 or 6am. Could.Not.Sleep. We woke up at 5am for a race that morning and there was a bunch of shady and rowdy people hanging around the front of the hotel.
In summary, hotel room, hotel cleanliness, hotel staff, hotel location all sucked. You definitely wouldn't want to experience what I did, so don't ever stay here.
