Positive Reviews

Excellent location

Enjoyable pool area

The rooftop pool has proved to be a big hit, with the majority of guests describing this pool as not only clean and well maintained but also a delight to use. The temperature of the water is warm so guests have been able to use the pool in the later part of the evening while watching the sunset.

Friendly front desk staff

Negative Reviews

Rooms may disappoint

The rooms here are an almost constant source of disappointment. Guests have found the accommodation very tired look and in a poor state of cleanliness and maintenance. Guests also report various sources of unwanted noise.

Housekeeping could be improved

Feedback about the standard of the housekeeping here is a little mixed. While some guests encountered no real issues, others found the service a little slack. Poorly cleaned rooms and banging about in the hallways are among the reported issues.

Poor Wi-Fi service

Guests have been disappointed by the small amount of Wi-Fi that is offered free each day. Also, guests have found the Wi-Fi is regularly unavailable and offers a slow connection.
