Overall cleanliness is a bit hit or miss

Disgruntled guests say that this hotel should work on improving its cleanliness, and report that some rooms have marks on the wall and stains on the furniture. Visitors also reveal that the en-suite bathrooms aren’t cleaned properly either, and reveal that some suffer from mould.

Quite easy to hear outside noise in the rooms

Unhappy travellers say that the accommodation here is not properly soundproofed and mention that it can be easy to hear other guests talking and partying on premises. They say that noisy neighbours can be really disturbing and make it hard to get a good night’s sleep.

Poor breakfast

It is hard to find a kind word written about the breakfast. Guests typically describe the meal as limited in variety and to contain poor quality items. In addition, guests complain that there is no proper room with tables and chairs in which to enjoy the meal.
