For a hundred dollars this hotel looks like a backpackers (10 or 20 bucks). Now that I am reviewing prices it looks that after the school holidays it went down to 50 (of course).
The hotel is budget. Only one of the ladies at the reception was very nice (the older blonde lady with hair just above the shoulders. Sorry I couldn't catch the name since me and my wife only saw her when we got there) , but there was one younger, also blonde with glasses very rude. Not a single smile came out of her mouth. (the receptionist should welcome the guests, not the other way around).
The room service was awful. we left the room at 1:00 p.m and the housekeepers were just outside the room and saw us leaving. we overheard when they said " let's come back later". but they never did (ah!! but in the morning they opened the door when there was a sign saying "DO NOT DISTURB" and took the towels before we even showered and it got even worse: they FORGOT to replace them.)
The next day we left the room and made sure that the sign was position correctly : PLEASE MAKE UP MY ROOM. This time nothing happened, they took the towels again (we had to request them the day before) and did not leave any.
The room was never cleaned up during our stay; and also the bed was never made (so we had to do it) and they FORGOT to empty the rubbish during 3 days. how nice!!!
They included breakfast in the rate. Not so bad but they should at least include eggs. There's a good range of hotels in the city a lot better and for less money (city waters, north lodge in the city, etc)
Hopefully this review help you. but please consider a different hotel.
