Negative Reviews

Located in an Unsafe, Crime-ridden Area

Guests reported feeling very unsafe walking around this neighbourhood which is known for being a hangout for drug dealers and prostitutes. The area is full of loud, drunken people listening to loud music and making a lot of noise throughout the night which makes it hard to get any sleep.

The Lifts are Small and Old

There are only two lifts at this hotel and guests reported that one of them rarely works. The lifts are very small, old and slow. Guests reported having to wait quite a while for the lift to come back.

The Parking is Not Ideal

The parking area for this hotel is located quite a ways from the main entrance and guests reported having to walk through a shady area with all their luggage to get there.
