Bed Height Rather Large

Although comfortable, some guests mentioned that the height of the platform of the beds can be rather tall. So if you're a shorter individual, you may have difficulty getting into the bed according to some travelers. Some actually suggested a stepstool given the beds height.

Noise Can Be a Factor

Not only is the hotel rather noisy, so is the area around it. Things can get a bit rowdy so you may want to make sure to pack your earplugs according to some travelers.
