Positive Reviews

Great location for budget travellers

The location is probably the main reason, aside from prices, that guest's book at this property. It is described as ideal, not only for all the nearby attractions, but also because it is just a short walk to Termini Station, so no complicated metro trip or expensive taxi is required.

Kind and personable host

Again and again the host is praised for his approachability and kindness. He really seems to have helped many guests, and left quite an impression. So much so that many guests referred to him as “uncle”.

Rooms very clean

Many guests booking into budget accommodation fear that the standard of cleanliness will not be up to scratch, but in this case it seems they didn't need to worry. Guests speak of both their room, and the common bathrooms, being kept very clean at all times.

Negative Reviews

Poor soundproofing

Unfortunately, like in many budget properties, the rooms at Giamaica do not seem to be very well soundproofed. Guests speak of being able to hear all the goings on in adjacent rooms.

Very basic rooms

While most guests realised that they had booked budget accommodation, some still felt that the rooms were just a bit too sparse and basic. Some would have liked a TV in their room, while others were looking for more interesting décor.

No shower curtains in the showers

For reasons guests can't quite understand, Giamaica has not put shower curtains up in the showers. Guests don't seem to like it, and it causes a bit of flooding on the bathrooms floors.
