This place should close down”

This was the worst stay of my life in my 30 years of life!! First the place reeks of food at reception. It's next to a flight garage thay reeks of urine it made me sick! There was flies all over at reception, I got to the room and the paint on the walls had chipped off, linen was dirty and I was given the wrong remote for the aircon. I had them change it but late at 9 someone who claimed to be "staff" knocked so hard on my door and asked if I could give him my remote for the aircon so he could give it to someone else. I've never seen such. It was just terrible. The place is full of cockroaches an i couldn't stay any longer when one was crawling on me while I lay on the bed. Definitely not going here aver again. I'd rather sleep on the streets.
