After spending three weeks on a cruise ship it's not surprising this hotel was a disappointing. Badly situated in a part of town where we were advised not to walk at night. The rooms (we had two different ones) were grim and noisy, though the beds were clean and comfortable. Contrary to advertised there is NO RESTAURANT. The snack bar/ cafe in the lobby only sold soft drinks. Staff were friendly and helpful but we wouldn't stay here again.

The neighborhood is dangerous at night. I was told to take a taxi from the C...
