“We had a different experience Not Good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2005

I am surpised by some of the reviews on here - because we had a decidedly different experience.

Firstly - the room was tiny and was squirreled away in the back - VIEW OF A NASTY ALLEYWAY. You also have to get over the fact that outside - all you can smell is fish! I could have gotten over that (for the price) but I can not get over the sticky carpet. My shoes literally STUCK top the carpet. And then the overpowering smell of catpee hit us - it was awful.

We went downstairs and asked to be moved but they claimed they could do nothing about it. I was there on business so didnt feel I could do much about it. To this day I can't believe we endured a night there. it was truly awful.

We stayed there on November 4th and 5th, 2005. The hotel itself is clean and nice - good value for the money. However, this is NOT a good hotel for light sleepers, due to the heavy street noise. If you are a light sleeper, do NOT get a room with windows facing the street - There is currently a lot of construction going on near the hotel, and the jackhammers start very early in the morning. In addition, there are a lot of trucks driving back and forth in front of the hotel ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT because of the fish market, which is only a block away. I barely slept a wink the first night we were there. The 2nd night, the staff graciously moved us to an interior room (facing an interior "courtyard", which isn't actually a courtyard). This room was MUCH quieter. Unless you sleep like a log, it is best to request one of these interior rooms.

The hotel and the rooms were generally nice. But in the day time there was a large open place outside the hotel. About 2 am in the morning, we realized what the place was for, it was a parking place for trucks getting fish from the fish market. All night there was a terrible noise of enginenes, trolleys and people arguing loudly.

The staff seemed OK at first. But when I asked to order a cab at a certain time, they said I could just call 5 minutes in advance. So I did, but then they said it would be 20 minutes. I almost missed a important meeting because of this.
