Não valeu o custo benefício, porque com o mesmo valor que eu paguei, eu teria ficado em um hotel 3 estrelas. No quarto e no banheiro tinha muito mofo. A cortina do banheiro deixava um vão que molhava o banheiro todo e como o chão do quarto estava muito sujo, tudo ficava com um aspécto horrível. Os utensílios usados no café da manhã estavam sujos, com resquícios de comida. Na cozinha a gaveta com os talheres estava imunda.
