I didn’t like that it was lacking a few basic things. A bedside lamp on one side of the bed only, no hooks/ racks for towels in the bathroom, no bin in the bathroom. And a very loose tap on the basin in the bathroom.

The location of the hotel was good, however the room I was in had an overwhelming smell of stale cigarette smoke. This made it very difficult to sleep and just breathe in general.

Nothing. I couldn't even stay at the hotel because they wanted a $150 bond from my card. I didn't have a pin so couldn't stay there.
