Positive Reviews

Convenient location.

It's easy to find and a very easy walk into the Old Town. Sea World is nearby and it's about half an hour to Legoland. Great location … in those respects.

Nice staff.

Members of staff, generally, are OK and the night-time security guard is particularly friendly. Front desk personnel are very pleasant, although there is something of a language problem; they speak very little English.

Good value.

The air conditioning works surprisingly well and when compared to the competition, the cost of staying here is really quite cheap.

Negative Reviews

Surrounded by traffic.

The property is directly under the freeway and the railway is just behind it. It's a busy 24-hour station and they always ‘honk' to let you know that they're working … whatever time of the day or night! Don't go out at night if you are a coward; the street is mega-creepy.

Room problems.

Water pressure is poor, leading to little or no shower. The shower is only attractive to the ants that have chosen to make it their home. Oh! And the shower also has mould issues. *You don't need all this after a long journey! There seems to be a shortage of non-smoking rooms. This doesn't bother the smoker but it's a real turn-off for others. Towels have a tale to tell and are covered in a variety of dubious stains.

Hope you've got a small car

Parking? That's another nightmare! The space is tiny so, to stand a chance of parking, come in the smallest car you can find. When you have parked up, there's no lift ... but there are some ground floor rooms.
