Negative Reviews

Expensive Versus Overpriced?.

Some visitors didn't like for the price per person, rather than price per room. Plus, they mentioned that for hotel with no air-conditioning the amount they paid seemed steep. While many admit that it’s a nice hotel, it simply doesn't scream luxury according to some visitors.

Refurbishing and Updating Perhaps.

A few guests mentioned that the windows seem old and traffic can be heard outside. The furniture seems old instead of nostalgic. They mentioned that a few renovations may be in order, particularly when you consider the rate.

Different Chefs; Different Results.

Depending on which meal you eat, and who is preparing it, your dining experience may vary. While you may have a fantastic dinner or breakfast, the same may not happen the next day, or even the next meal. Furthermore, a few visitors remarked that service may be slow on some nights.
