Positive Reviews

Nice Location

The hotel was found to have a great location within walking distance from the public transportation stops such as the metro and the bus. The hotel is also close to the shopping district and convenient to explore the city.

Friendly Staff

The staff was found to be nice by guests who stayed here. They were happy to have people who were positive, spoke English and accommodated their guest requests.

Nice Restaurants

The restaurant, the coffee shop and the bar were nice eateries to have in the hotel. Guests were happy to have these things in the hotel so it was easy to have a quick drink or snack without heading too far away from their rooms.

Negative Reviews

No In-Room Wi-Fi

Guests thought the Wi-Fi not being available in the rooms to be inconvenient and annoying. They felt the Wi-Fi should be available in the rooms because they could use the Internet in the comfort of their rooms. Instead it is only available in the lobby.

Worn Rooms

The rooms were found to be worn and used more than guests would have liked. They felt the carpets were dirty and stained, while the walls had worn wallpaper. The sheets on the bed did not leave a clean impression either. The aspect of the rooms was not positive.

Small Bathrooms

Guests did not enjoy having a very small bathroom to use during their stay. They felt very cramped using the showers and the sinks, and they would have liked more room.
