Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Perhaps the worst “hotel” I’ve ever stayed at. This is a one star hostel masquerading as a two star hotel. The room I stayed in had no phone, no cups, no refrigerator and no bathroom and the hotel had no front desk. My room connected to another room and I could hear the people in the next room using the bathroom and going about their business. There is also no parking. The only positive about the hotel was it’s exceptional location. If you stay here you should be clear that you are staying at what really should be a zero star hostel for a deep discount.

I didn’t like that there was no lobby staff to check in. We had to walk to another hotel around the block to check in.

Hotel location is good, close to shops and attractions Transport links to airport and the area are very good Facilities were good, room was basic but modern Showers were kept very clean The staff were very helpful. I had an incident where I needed to use their phone and they provided all the assistance I could ask for Only negative, the hotel seemed to have a strange smell
