Negative Reviews

Small lift.

The elevator is very small in size.

More maintenance needed.

The hotel maintenance needs to be given more importance as carpets and doors are dirty. The place generally looks uncared for and not worthy of four stars.

Wi-Fi poor.

Wi-Fi network is very poor and sometimes not at all accessible.
