Negative Reviews

Not all rooms have been renovated

This hotel appears to have been undergoing renovation for quite some time (more than two years!). As a result, only some of the rooms have benefited from upgrades. These rooms are impressive, but there's no guarantee that you will be allocated one of these.

Windows don't open

Several guests comment that they were unable to open the window in their room. As a result, they were forced to rely on air-conditioning to bring the temperature down. Unfortunately, while the units work well, they are also rather noisy and turn on and off periodically.

Some noise concerns

A number of the rooms at this property are subject to traffic noise. Also, the on-going renovations taking place at the hotel results in some guests complaining of being able to hear hammering and sawing as early as 7.30 am.
