Negative Reviews

Rooms Need Refurbishment

Not only are rooms basic, but guests report they are also dirty, obviously not cleaned in between guests. The dingy rooms come with small, old TVs with poor picture quality, and carpets need a deep cleaning, among other issues.

Misleading Location

This hotel is quite far from the city centre, according to guests, much farther than advertised. It's at least a 20-minute walk, although you can take a taxi.

Bathroom Facility Issues

Not all rooms have en suite baths. In order to get one, you must request it. Toiletries are cheap in quality and many have been already half used. To make matters worse, those looking to take a shower will have to wait until 4 p.m., as hot water doesn't get turned on until then.
