"Guest"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
My stay was horrible. The room had an old mildew odor. The room was located in the courtyard with a reconstruction view. The room walls were thin and a drunk man came out the room and was vomiting in front of our room all night. No ice machines were working. I will never stay there again.
