Very plain decor - even in a 'deluxe' double en suite we had only a bed so all our stuff had to lie on the floor, which is a problem anyway but especially when ants are so quick to appear! Our bathroom was pretty grimy, but the communal kitchen was always spotless; however the oven didn't work properly which spoiled our dinner. No bar, no meals or even snacks offered, zero atmosphere... literally nothing to do. The service was fine but there is a very obvious lack of management presence here.

Was a fine place to stay. Unfortunately the Internet access wasn't working while we were there, which was an annoyance. The staff were generally helpful and friendly, but not overly so.
