Negative Reviews

Small rooms

Guests find the rooms are a bit small for a comfortable stay. Those who have taken the basic accommodations feel confined in rooms that do not have windows.

Poor Wi-Fi facilities

Internet users notice that the strength and stability of the Wi-Fi facilities depend on the location of the rooms. Those who stay in rooms farther from the router experience poor connection, with slow and intermittent speeds. They suggest that installing more routers or upgrading the Internet facility is needed.

Lacked amenities

Guests complain that rooms can be lacking in amenities like iron, hair dryer, and refrigerator. According to reviews, rooms don't even have a telephone/intercom to call the front desk staff.
