Negative Reviews

Thin walls

Many guests complain about this hotel having poor soundproofing, but for very different reasons. Some blame the thin walls, because they can hear their neighbours or people walking in the hallway. Some also find the plumbing too loud. For others, its the noisy pedestrian traffic outside that is a cause for concern.

No windows

Guests generally do not like the rooms with no windows, finding them a bit stuffy, as they lack proper ventilation. Fortunately, the hotel does also have accommodation options with windows.
