Positive Reviews

Great breakfast

Satisfied travellers regularly gave the breakfast top marks. They said that the variety of food on offer at the buffet made it easy to fill up on both hot and cold dishes. Those with special diets had little trouble finding nutritious options that fit their needs.

Location, location, location

For many guests, the location of this hotel was perfect. Those with cars had no trouble getting to the centre of the Old City. Meanwhile, the proximity of public transport lines made it quick and easy for backpackers and other travellers.

Clean accommodation

Travellers said that this hotel's staff did a great job of maintaining both rooms and common areas. Guests with children felt comfortable letting their kids play barefoot in the rooms. The solid housekeeping made everyone feel relaxed and at home.

Negative Reviews

Poor service

Many disappointed reviewers said that the hotel staff did not seem to care much for customer service. Those with problems checking into their rooms, or issues with broken appliances or bathroom fixtures, had difficulty getting any of the employees to help.

Difficult parking situation

The on-site parking lot is gated, and many travellers were not entirely sure how to open the gate. According to reviewers, at times, there were employees ready to open the gate, but at other times, no one was around.

Issues with ventilation

Many disappointed reviewers had issues with the air in their accommodation. During the hot months of the year, their air conditioning units did not work well, and during winter, many were cold. In addition, guests on multiple review sites reported strange smells.
