The original building was damaged in the American bombings several times and rebuilt in a modern way. The building is still beautiful and retain its French style. It is very neatly kept. Descriptions in English is adequate to help the international passengers.

Nothing special about this place. A busy, unorganised, chaotic mess at points. Lots of work needed to improve and most of the staff are just rude
