Spacious, clean and comfy rooms
One recurring comment was that although it's not a luxury establishment, the hotel had sufficiently spacious rooms for most travelers' needs. Reviewers often described the rooms as clean and comfortable with a healthy supply of fresh towels. However, a few guests complained that the bathrooms were a bit smaller than they were used to.
Light sleepers disturbed by noise
Some reports suggested soundproofing between rooms and corridors was limited, while others described occasional street noise keeping them awake. Some reviewers recommended light sleepers to avoid rooms adjacent to the shared bathroom facilities.
No elevator and some facilities showing their age
The lack of an elevator bothered some travelers. Additionally, a few visitors spotted some furnishings and facilities with signs of wear and tear. These included aging furniture, worn carpets, tired bathrooms and malfunctioning showers.
Long trek to shared bathroom
Those staying in rooms without en suite facilities occasionally reported having to take long walks down narrow corridors to reach the nearest shared bathroom.
