The room was very nice and clean. The temperature control wasn’t working. The hotel was nice and clean as well. Not very big of course. The location was just ok. More than 10min walk to metro. Not ideal location as it is not close to anything and not much to see around. But good value for money for someone to just crash overnight.

The room No. I was assigned in 313, bath room was tore (broken) and water with bad smell came out from the previous user when you stand on it, leave it alone to sit on it.. Before fixing this room it shouldn't have been rented for guests. While knowing this serious discomfort for visitors doing such business is simply not ethical. I went to the reception and seriously complained the next morning and they changed to another room. this is not good hospitality.

please beware before booking, if during checkout they dont charge you and keep your id with them, please make sure you know about all the hidden charges which they tell you during checkout only. And the exchange rate is so low, that you can easily get a room for another night with the amount the deduct with foreign currency. Told them 5 times to make up my room but still it wasnt done.

These are the issues about this hotel. 1- The music is so loud from both night clubs in the lobby that there is no way you can sleep in your room until 3 in the morning. 2-WIFI is not strong or constantly cuts off in lobby. 3- The hot water was not hot at all. Even I mentioned many times to the front desk , they totally ignored my concern. 4-Rooms never gets cleaned unless you ask for. 5- Bathroom are not cleaned properly.
