    The worst hotel I have ever seen. Location - 3rd grade location, after 7pm you can find drunk people's next to the hotel as there is a wine shop next to the hotel. at evening when we were standing outside the hotel we saw lot of prostitute standing opposite to the hotel. so it's not at all advisable to stay along with family. We were given a room at 2nd floor, around 3 mid night someone knock at out door, when asked who was there no one responded and keep on knocking. Bath Shower - Water flow is as if they are offering honey to bath... it was the most worst experience we had... water flows in dropps... Don't ever stay in this hotel if you are with family LADIES... it's very unsafe..

    The staff were very helpful, helping with getting about in a city we are new in. They have a wonderful central courtyard with hundreds of birds coming in the evening and leaving in the morning. Well situated for the local trains and busses, perfect for the budget traveller.

    The room could have been a bit cleaner,
