Negative Reviews

Tight parking

Many guests say that parking can be an issue at the property. They note that the parking lot is small, with narrow parking spaces so not a lot of cars can fit in. Several guests point out that some inconsiderate drivers take up two spaces when parking, which makes the whole parking situation even more difficult.

Can get noisy

Several guests point out that the hotel is in a busy area, so some noise is inevitable. They suggest asking for rooms facing away from the road, and recommend that light sleepers pack earplugs for a more convenient and restful stay.

Small pool and gym
