Negative Reviews

Rude staff

The staff is rather rude and curt with their replies to queries from guests. Guests find it rather unusual that an early arrival gets a corner of the lobby and not luggage storage to place luggage until Check-in.

Unclean bathrooms

The bathrooms are unclean and not cleaned up after a guest Checks-out and trash is found by the staying guests. Guests find the air fresheners used in the lobby nauseating and strong.

Dated hotel and not value for money

The hotel is dated and guests find that it is overpriced for the facilities provided. The equipment like microwave does not function well, television reception is shaky and Wi-Fi is as slow as a dial-up connection.
