Positive Reviews

A comfortable stay.

Many guests can attest that they enjoyed clean and secure rooms that also happened to be well stocked with items such as bottled water. Guests appreciated that rooms were thoroughly cleaned, and that a key card was necessary to access the hotel elevator.

Staff on the ball.

Staff were a highlight for many, with the majority of guests commenting that customer service was memorable here. While a few guests wished that staff members spoke more English, hotel personnel seemed to be doing their jobs to the best of their abilities.

Laundry facilities a big bonus.

Having access to a washer and dryer was a dream come true for many long term travellers. The ability to wash clothes was high on the list of reasons why this hotel was given top marks. And while you might have to wait awhile for one of the three machines, guests said that it was still worth it.

Negative Reviews

Cramped rooms.

A lot of unnecessary furniture made rooms seem smaller than they actually were. Guests said that this, combined with a lack of a view, made them want to spend the least amount of time as possible in rooms.

Hit and miss Wi-Fi.

Several guests reported a painstaking process of trying to use the Internet. It seems that some days are better than others for connecting to Wi-Fi, but if you are one of the unlucky ones who need to get some work done, this could be a problem.

Hard mattresses.

Guests said that mattresses here brought a whole new meaning to firm. Some described beds as hard as a rock, and if you have back problems or are a bit of a fussy sleeper, this could spell trouble.
