Negative Reviews

Some Cobwebs Might Disappoint Guests

Being a rather old hotel, cobwebs could not be avoided In some cases, cobwebs are found in the bathroom, in the ceilings, and even in the lamps This is not a major problem though because a quick call to the reception can solve the issue.

Late Check-In Time Could Be Inconvenient

The last thing that tired guests would want is to get stalled in check-in The hotel has a rather late check-in time of 3:00 PM, making guests who are still very weary from travelling wait for a long period of time before they could enjoy the comfort of their rooms.

Quite expensive rates

With everything that this place has to offer, it will reflect on the price They say that the hotel is a bit more expensive than its neighbouring places, but the service and quality is worth it.
