Maybe it is because we got a cheaper room up on the top floor... But this place was horrible! Can't understand why it's even classed as a hotel...no towels, room was dirty... Shudder to look at the state of the pillows under the pillow cases. Bed was lumpy and very old. Bathroom was the worst part- very dirty and scummy,... More

Great place to sleep, small rooms with about 4 people, breezt and comfy. The storage lock up for your bags is terrible but the room was great. Overall positive stay. But the clerk up front wasn't the friendliest and the bathroom needed a lot of work.

I stayed at this place with two friends for four nights. We came here late on a sunday night. The old man in the reception was quite friendly but he tried to charge us double city tax. I don't know if it was a simple calculation mistake or if he actually meant it. Our room, #107, was in the front... More

We had booking with ConteHouse, but they moved us to this cheap hotel.The customer service is so bad, we even spoke to the boss because we originally have breakfast included in our booking. And he was rude. There are no wifi in rooms (only in the lobby). Everything is old and even my room door was hard to open. Terrible... More

Having read these reviews before I travelled, I was rather dubious about what I was going to experience. However, I was rather surprised! We stayed up in the hotel section on the fourth floor, in which our room featured beds that were surprisingly comfortable, air conditioning, mini fridge and tv, all of which were functioning well. The en-suite bathroom was... More
