The lobby is spacious and the front office and other staff is quite courteous. Rooms are well furnished and clean ,but appear to have have few dated articles too. Wifi... More

The lobby is beautiful. But when you get to your floor , you realize how dirty the carpets are. We stayed there for three nights. And they had some issue with their boiler before we reached. In the cold weather we did not get hot water for 2 nights. After that when the group was upset and asked for refund,... More

This place doesn't even deserve a 3 star rating. As soon as you enter there is a bad smell. Room was not ready when we got there. As you enter the corridor to the rooms it stinks of urine. The room was even worse, beds uncomfortable, pillows rock hard, felt like there was bed bugs. Room was unbreathable. Slow service... More

The rooms are very outdated and some rooms smell cigarettes and mold. The location is not very good, specially at night. The wifi doesn't work properly. However, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was full of choices.

The hotel is centrally located and is within easy reach of the Waterfront and town. Rooms are a good size and are clean but could use a refurbishment, however, it is not in dire need of one. The bathrooms are clean and a good size too. What makes this hotel so pleasant for me is the staff who are warm... More
