STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL. The rooms are horrible. No hot water. No amenities. The bed came from a prison. There were insects and bed bugs. The walls are thin and I could hear the people in the next room. I once stayed in a Cuban prison which was nicer than this hotel. AND, they double charged me for the room and won't give my money back. I would rather die than stay in this horrible place. MANTENTE LEJOS DE ESTE HOTEL. Las habitaciones son horribles. No hay agua caliente No hay comodidades. La cama provenía de una prisión. Había insectos y chinches. Las paredes son delgadas y pude escuchar a la gente en la habitación de al lado. Una vez estuve en una prisión cubana que era más bonita que este hotel. Y, me cobraron dos veces por la habitación y no me devolverán el dinero. Prefiero morir que quedarme en este horrible lugar.
