Reliable internet.

Several reviewers mention that the Wi-Fi was strong, which many found to be one of the most highly recommendable aspects of this hotel.

Ideal cheap accommodation option.

Many guests say that if you are looking for budget accommodation, this is a good option. Though most acknowledge the quality of rooms is not to the highest standard, those that placed value for money above all else found the hotel to be satisfactory.

Negative Reviews

Size of rooms less than satisfactory.

Several guests say they found their room, particularly the bathroom, to be too small. Some guests say they were only able to open their bathroom door halfway because their room was so small.

Narrow stairs make access difficult.

Some reviewers mention that the stairs were too narrow and difficult for them, and recommend those that foresee access to be an issue request a room on the lower floors. There is no elevator in the building.

Rundown rooms.

Many guests found their room – and other parts of the hotel such as hallways – to be run down and dirty. There are mentions of broken televisions, uncomfortable, old beds and too few electrical outlets.
