Negative Reviews

Small and windowless rooms

The rooms at the property are illustrated as small by reviewer comments. Guests find it difficult to move about the rooms after unpacking their stuff. In addition, they complain about the lack of windows in some rooms, complaining that without windows the room becomes a rather cramped environment.

No lift

Guests verify that this five-storey property does not have lift facilities for people – only a tiny lift that can carry luggage and suitcases. Visitors are disappointed to climb several flights of stairs to reach the rooms, especially those staying on the upper floors.

Insufficient breakfast fare

The breakfast options served every morning are described as boring and insufficient. Travellers say the foods are mostly limited to bread and fruit juices or coffee. Most guests prefer to eat at the nearby cafes and fast-food joints.
