Negative Reviews

Room issues

Rooms have stained carpets. The furniture appears cheap and has cracks. The mattress on the bed is very thin. The blinds of the windows are broken and the screen torn. Air conditioning is not in working order.

Noise levels high

The rooms are prone to noise not just from being on the main street but because the walls are thin enough to let neighboring voices and sounds seep in.

Breakfast service poor

There is neither enough staff to serve breakfast nor enough bowls, napkins and flatware.
