2/10 Poor

Not recommended. Other hotels would be better.
Not recommended. Very basic hotel, does not feel clean. Very noisy street. Poor quality room, does not exceed 2 star rating. Shocking, Trimmers on high floors of building, almost felt like small quakes. No wifi in room, only in lobby, and very slow. Bathroom door barely opens halfway, as the tiny hand sink blocks the door. Dark lobby during the day, as no lights are turned on. That area in general is really dirty, Will never stay there again.
