Negative Reviews

Small Spaces

Some of the rooms, especially the single rooms, are described as quite small, with the single rooms also lacking closets and storage space. Some of the double rooms are also a bit cramped, and may feel uncomfortable with two people, especially if you both have large luggage. A few guests also thought that the rooms had a poor layout.

Boring Breakfast

There are many mixed reviews about the breakfast, with many guest finding the food to be nothing more than average. In addition, the food selection is not always replenished fast, and the overall selection is quite limited. Furthermore, guests were also not very impressed with the onsite restaurant, saying that it did not appear welcoming, and also was too busy.

Slow Lifts

Many guests complained about the slow elevators at the hotel, often used by housekeeping. Some of the guests said they had to wait ten minutes to use one.
