This hotel was just OK. I was not impressed by the security. All the room keys hung at reception where anyone could just lift one and go up to any room! The lady at reception was quite stern. She insisted that I pay up front.
The room was just OK, a bit drab and run down looking - no shower curtain and not the cleanest.
When we wanted to dine, the lady who ran the place said we could only eat if we eat immediatly - ie: no time for shower!
I agreed, but she then hung over me and tapped her watch, while I was choosing my meal. I was taken aback - I told her not to push me - she was very rude. For the first time in my life I walked out of a restaurant. Thankfully we found a very nice Italian place.
I would not recommend this hotel - unless there is nowhere else to get a room !
