Negative Reviews

Small-sized room

According to reviews, the rooms are not the most spacious. In fact, those staying with a family or group feel cramped within the units.

No air conditioning

If there is anything the rooms can add, guests vote for air conditioning. When the temperatures rise, the rooms tend to get a bit stuffy. While a fan is provided, it doesn't freshen up the rooms well or quick enough.
