Over priced. Does not look anything like the pictures on the internet. Not the greatest of areas to stay. Shower was a complete joke, door missing shower not even facing downwards it pointed towards your face. Staff not interested in doing anything for you. Over all for the money I paid I should of paid a bit extra and stayed... More

Not sure how this hotel garnered some of the reviews, this is a hot and sweaty one star in a dodgy area. They must be backpackers. For a $100 just not worth it given that it is not clean and you just feel nothing safe in the rooms and the area not good. For the business traveler not an option.

This proved to be a mistake in the description of the standard rooms at both hotel.com, expedia.com and the web page of the hotel itself. These facilities... More

I stayed in a triple room which contained a small kitchenette and overlooked the pool. There is no lift but staff are available to help with luggage. I stayed on the second... More

I expected more for what I paid. The room was spacious which was very good for me as I had a lot of luggage. The service however was not good. When I arrived at the hotel, it appeared to me that I bothered the receptionists. It felt like they had somewhere else they wanted to be or something else they... More
