  • 8.0.Very Good

    Great price but the room is tiny and comes with zero amenities apart from a TV. No coffeemaker, no alarm clock, no USB outlet for phone charging. You can definitely hear your neighbors. However, the room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was small but nice. Breakfast was great!

    It's all you need for a good night's sleep and a clean up after being on the road, which is what I used it for.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Not so good

    The room was poorly cleaned. Dust on all horizontal areas like the bed table, table etc. There was a bottle print on the bed table and also a human hair laying here. It was not good. I felt for cleaning all surfaces I would touch on the bathroom, and also the remote control. AC did not work as intended It was too hot in my room, despite the fact I turned the temperatur all the way down

    Good

    The hotel is good and what you need for a reasonable price for location. Only problem encountered in rooms I have stayed in is lack of working TV channels, roughly only 4 work fully. Told hotel and they said this is to be looked into, not staying there again till November so can't confirm if fixed or not.
