  • 2.0.Poor

    Worst Hotel Ever Checked in....

    Worst hotel ever, it took us more than 2 hrs to locate the hotel as in google map its at a different location. The worst part, 100's of mosquitos in the room, no fan, no mosquito nets. We checked out at 3am and looked for another hotel. Fortunately we got one. I completely do not recommend anyone, especially who is very sleepy and needs rest.
