Negative Reviews

Some rooms are on the small side.

No in-room tea-making facilities.

A lack of in-room tea and coffee-making facilities means guests have to seek their beverages from the hotel restaurants or bar. This proves unsatisfactory to those guests used to being able to prepare their own tea and coffee.
