Positive Reviews

Convenient location

Travellers say that it is easy to get around and explore the area while staying in this hotel. Access to public transport is highly convenient. Guests mention that there is a taxi stand in front of the hotel, and the closest metro station is about five minutes away by foot. In addition, most business establishments are within easy walking distance.

Commendable service

The quality of service rendered by the hotel staff seems commendable. Guests view them as friendly, polite, and always willing to help. Every member makes guests feel welcome by giving consideration to their requests and sharing useful information on things to see and do.

Spotless accommodations

Guests find it pleasing that cleanliness is maintained throughout the property. Comments from guests show that cleanliness is not a big issue during their stay.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi connectivity issues

The Wi-Fi signal is not found in some rooms of the hotel, especially those located on the lowest floor. Guests experience an intermittent signal when using the wireless connection. They also mention that even Internet access through the hotel PCs is very slow.

Rooms without outside view

Guests are disappointed that many of the rooms have no windows to the outside. Instead, the windows open onto an internal corridor, and therefore do not allow fresh air to come into the rooms.

No lift facility

It is noticed that the property is designed with two floors above the ground level and two floors below; hence, entrance to the hotel is literally on the third level. Since there is no lift, guests have to use flights of stairs, either going up or down, to reach their rooms.
