Although very conveniently located next to the Carnival City, this hotel is not exactly 3 stars! The rooms are very small, a tiny shower tary, and have a tiny 14inch TV that shows only 4 channels. There is no high speed internet in any rooms. You can get wi-fi in the lobby area only up to 9.00 pm. The strangest thing is that the phones in the room cannot be used to make any calls outside the hotel! Coffee or breakfast is not included in the room rate and the staff makes sure they charge you for it. On weekends this hotel gets very crowded and very noisy. The hotel rooms also get very smoky because of very poor ventilation. You have to make sure that you ask for a non-smoking room well in advance! I guess this hoetl could be okay for a couple of days but definitely is not comfortable for longer (4+ days) stays. The big advantage is that the Carnival city mall is next door and has a bunch of restaurants and bars and other entertainment within a short walking distance.
