We stayed here to celebrate my wife birthday together with my 2 kids. The smell of the carpet was not nice, cable tv was so awful we prefer to turn it off instead. Cr was so small and when we checked out it took us an hour to get a cab.

The hotel is located well and has great potential. The staff is good. The security guards are friendly and helpful. The rooms are tired and worn. The carpets are old, stained and ugly. The walls could use a fresh coat if paint. The place has potential but us not worth more than 2 stars.
