Positive Reviews

Super staff

There is a nice warm welcome from members of staff who are, from that point onwards, extremely helpful.

Rooms are excellent

The room is very clean and tidy. It is quite spacious and the bathroom is excellent with a steady supply of hot water. The air conditioning works well so there are none of those usual musty smells. Everything is light and airy, rooms are cleaned daily and bed linen is changed regularly. If staying in the hostel section at Victoria House, prices are cheaper, accommodation more basic – but apparently, the value is still very good.

Full marks for the location

The location is fine and close to the centre of the city. The market is just outside the door with a useful 7-Eleven convenience store just a few steps away.

Negative Reviews

Don’t forget the letter ‘S’!

When booking, there can be some confusion between the hotel and hostel accommodation. It’s worth double checking everything because, whilst the hostel is apparently OK, the dormitory set-up can come as a bit of a shock to hotel guests who book it by mistake.

Minor problems need ironing out

The communal iron and board are in the main lobby area which isn’t covered by the air conditioning and which is stiflingly hot. Also, the board is set very low so that hated job of ironing becomes more tedious than usual. Parking is very difficult and it isn’t easy to see how this can be rectified; largely because of the daily activity relating to the market next door.

High living but low pressure

There is no elevator, which might be a deterrent for some guests. Water pressure can be a problem on the higher floors. There is a TV but with a very limited number of channels. Wi-Fi is generally, poor.
