Negative Reviews

Hard to reach by car

According to feedback, guests who arrived by car found it difficult reaching the hotel. It seems that the hotel is located in a pedestrianised area which offers limited access to vehicles. If you are planning to drive here, check with the hotel to make sure you are aware of the precise arrangements such as the location of the car park so as to avoid any difficulties.

Poor air-conditioning

At times, the in-room air-conditioning doesn't meet expectations. Guests mention that during hot weather the air-conditioning didn't seem able to reduce the temperature in any meaningful way which resulted in hot and stuffy conditions.

Noisy at times

On occasion, this hotel can be a little noisy. Guests comment that they were able to hear noises from other guests and also noise from outside.
