Because of the good location and all the good reviews, we decided to stay here for 3 nights. After 1 night we left! When we came into the room, it was smelling out of the bathroom! The room was old and dusty, the air condition (I think it was one - at least 40 years old if not older) didn't...

Before we came here I read the usual classic whinges that make choosing a hotel so difficult. Look.. This place isn't the Ritz. For $200 a night we got two adjoining rooms each with their own bathroom, tv's, a fridge and free Internet. We were literally 3 minutes walk from the mall in a great part of the city surrounded...

Yes, its tired and needs some serious t.l.c. but as everyone agrees its ideally located and staff friendly and informative if you need guidance. I also found the setup good - Harriets for eating and Harrys bar for drinking, both accessible from the front reception area. Breakfasts more than adequate - recommend the help yourself type rather than order by...

This is a budget hotel. I traveled here on a school trip and if one thing is sure the school was going to go for rock bottom prices. Really the rooms reminded me a lot of hotels at home (Ireland). It was clean sure but, outdated, basic and air conditioning was non existent. My average day consisted of about four...

I was here on a business trip, so I don't care to much about service and other stuff I would prefer when I would be on a holiday. Nevertheless for $165 US per night I would have expected not to find moult in my shower nor hanging electrical wires where I was not sure about fire security. That been said...

The 'air conditioning' is a rod that opens up a shared cold-air ventilation system. The rooms are claustrophobic, the bathrooms even more so. The best thing I can say about the hotel is that it was close to our chosen tour company, which unfortunately was also terrible.

As previous reviews state it is a budget hotel. The rooms are in need of decoration,but they are clean. The staff were fairly helpful. The location is great and very close to the Metro. The breakfast available in the Harriet's restaurant was plentiful as it was a buffet but average quality.
