Pleasant and helpful staff
One of the first things guests mentioned in their reviews was that they found the front office staff to be very friendly, pleasant and willing and able to provide top quality local information and recommendations.
Very attractive courtyard
Though it was nothing fancy, guests thoroughly enjoyed sending time in the backyard courtyard, saying it was a lovely tranquil area perfect for relaxation and contemplation.
No air conditioning
Many of those travelling in the hot summer months were unhappy that their room did not have air conditioning. It seems that some rooms are more prone to getting uncomfortably hot than others, and guests allocated one of these rooms felt they really did need air conditioning to make them comfortable.
While most guests did realise that they had a room with a shared bathroom when booking it, this did not change the fact that they disliked the set up. Some also felt that there were a bit too many rooms assigned to a single bathroom, and often had to wait to use it.
There were far too many complaints about the Wi-Fi for comfort. Some mentioned that it was simply not working at all, while others experienced a system that was both unreliable and slow.
