    Horrible hotel

    Dirty room. Misleading pictures on the site in terms of cleanness. The place is not organised. I regret my self. On the day of check I decided to cancel my booking even with my bank unfortunately my bank said i can't reverse a payment. There's 2 swimming pools, 1 for non whites and its dirty.
