Although the room (4 single beds) looked clean my daughter ended up with horrendous bed bug bites(confirmed because we saw them scurrying). As she turned out to be allergic, it was a challenging end to our vacation. The people were great, but the room had no air flow and in the warm weather we needed an open window fresh air... More

Although a 3-star budget hotel...I've stayed in far cheaper that provided working air conditioners and windows that open. That's right...there was no way to open a window to get any fresh air. There was an air conditioner installed, but not functioning. The staff were polite but were not able move us to a room with windows that open because they... More

Don't get me wrong, cheap also means that is a a low budget place. But the mosquitos kill u, man!! The room was ok, clean. The breakfast costs A LOT! Coffee is only filter, so if you are not italian you'll be fine..

Also if we haven't eaten anything in the hotel, we found a great disponibilty of all the staff, that were kind in every situation. The rooms are quite large and polite, the only spoilts are a loss of functionality of some tools like a lighter or the remote control. Overall it's a good place to house during your trip

Nearest tram station was only 15 min walk. Hotel has an outside garden were you can chill in, even late at night. The in-house cafe is a bit pricy, but really nice. 4 of us went and stayed in a 4 bed room which was really nice, toilet/shower is a nit small. But overall a good stay.

The West Side Inn had been booked on my behalf as it is located near a client I was visiting. I'm not sure how this hotel has earned 3 stars. The room I was in was stifling hot, with no ventilation, a non operational air conditioner, and no way of opening the window. There was a tiny extractor type fan... More

I have just come back from a 2 night stay at the West Side Inn hotel and I had an incredible experience with them. The staff are lovely, professional and very helpful! Our room was extremely clean and I am very fussy about cleanliness. The room was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The front of the hotel is... More

First off, it's located in a worn down neighborhood, not very accessible from the airport as you'd might think looking at a map. When we arrived the lock didn't work, and on the last day they started doing maintenance on the locks before we'd even checked out. They had duct taped the bathroom (the only decent part of the room,... More
