Positive Reviews

Very reasonable room rates

The reviews show that what budget-travellers most like about this property is its low room rates. These appear to be quite low, and those prioritising affordability are typically the happiest here.

Friendly staff

Guests are typically impressed with the staff here, saying they are friendly and try their best to help guests under what are often trying circumstances. Travellers appreciate their readiness to assist.

Decent location

This hotel is located right in the centre of town, something that generally appeals to guests due to the proximity of outside restaurants and the famous thermal pools.

Negative Reviews

In serious need of maintenance and renovation

Typically the first thing guests notice on arrival, and mention in their reviews, is that this property is in serous need of renovation. According to posted comments, it is looking very shabby throughout, with the lack of maintenance and upkeep visible in both the rooms and the property as a whole. The bathrooms come in for especially harsh criticism, with guests saying they are very outdated. Additionally, the showers have low pressure and water that is often not hot enough. The old-style TVs also do not impress.

Very dirty throughout

Guests appear quite shocked at the standard of cleanliness on arrival. Some even recount cancelling their bookings and leaving immediately. Dirty bathrooms, soiled and smelly sheets, and the presence of cockroaches are just some of the problems guests bring up in their reviews.
