Positive Reviews

City-central option

Negative Reviews

No parking

Many guests are disappointed with the lack of parking at the hotel. According to visitors, the hotel only offers street parking, with no specially reserved area for guests. Unfortunately, finding parking in the area can be challenging, thus frustrating many travellers.

Need for cosmetic updating

Judging from the reviews, the hotel is overdue for a cosmetic refurbishment. While some guests just find the decor outdated, many complain about the details such as scratched and scuffed walls and doors that could use a coat of fresh paint. Other guests find that the rooms have a poor stale smell due to lack of proper ventilation.

No lift

Travellers with heavy luggage are generally not happy to discover the hotel's lack of an lift. Guests say all rooms require climbing a set or more of steep stairs, which are a pain after a long day travelling or exploring.
