Good stuff: I can't think of anything good about this hotel - shockingly bad and very poor value for money
Bad stuff: Dirty premises in a stinking scruffy, down-at-heel area. There is no lift and the staircase to the room is very steep indeed - difficult when carrying suitcases.
The room was very badly in need of refurbishment, several lights didn't work, there were water stains on the ceiling, tiles missing in the tiny bathroom that strongly smelled of damp, walls repaired with bare plywood that didn't match the remainder of the badly stained walls and only a single curtain that did not cover the window, which was hanging off it's hinges. I didn't want to touch anything. After seeing the room, we went searching for an alternative and eventually found one a short distance away. I returned to Manovo and spoke to the Chinese owner who insisted on charging us for two nights due to, "late cancellation" and when I listed my complaints about the room, just shrugged and said "that's what you expect when you book a one star hotel".
The location of the hotel is in a filthy, very noisy main street frequented by drug addicts, beggars and drunks. I was spat on immediately outside the hotel by a beggar demanding cigarettes.
Overall: Terrible. I would advise travelers to use an alternative such as the RHO hotel where we eventually stayed - similar price and far superior location, room and service.
