Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi is unreliable

The Wi-Fi connection is not the best It seems that certain areas of the hotel get better reception than others, including certain rooms If you rely on a steady internet connection for work purposes, you may wish to seek out the internet café, as it seems to be the best area for a solid connection.

Area can be dicey at night

The hotel is safe, but as with any urban setting, you may notice a wide variety of individuals around the hotel and in the surrounding area During the day is less of a concern than in the evenings, but if you’re accustomed to urban environments this may not be an issue for you.

Rooms and bathrooms are small

You might feel confined in your room, and more than likely, cramped in your bathroom This isn’t a hotel that offers spacious rooms for guests, which isn’t unusual for many city hotels If you’re willing to pay for more space, you may consider doing so at another hotel.
