The worse stay ever. The hotel is terrible and the staff is very aggressive. I left after 30 minutes of checking in, so you can imagine what did I find. The hotel refuse to cancel and refund any money. They claim that they are three star hotel so they can be dirty, aggressive and you should accept whatever they offer.
