8/10 Very good

Nice hotel, Terrible, Tiny Gym
The Hotel Arbaso is very nice. Staff is nice. The gym is ridiculously too small! It is not fully equipped. It is lacking gym essentials such as myofacial foam rolls, Bosu, rubber tubbing such as spri bands. There are no small towels provided in the gym. There is no water in the gym. The gym is so tiny, more than one person you are on top of each other. There is no Kleenex provided in the room. Not enough shower gel provided. Bathrooms adjacent the gym had nothing to dry your hands with, in both the mens and womens bathroom. The downstairs bathrooms were also dirty with shreds of toilet paper all over the floor. The Hotel is nicely done and in a convenient location. The gym issue is a big one because it needs to be at least five times larger at the very minimum. The hotel at the very least must get the small items which are missing...

2/10 Poor

One of the worst customer service experiences I’ve had in my 40 years of travel. Staff were far from courteous. Managers not even available. Damaged property without compensation or even an I’m sorry. If this is what you want in a hotel I’m sorry but you’re forewarned.

2/10 Poor

This is likely the worst hotel stay I’ve experienced in my 40yrs of travel. Abysmal customer service - blamed us for the A/C not working when after hours they acquiesced that it was an issue with the hotel but still didn’t address the issue. Also destroyed my luggage but blamed me rather than their employee several of us watched cause the damage. Lied that the managers were on vacation and thus no one was able address concerns and I’d just have to live with it. Screwed up my reservation and locked me out of my room inappropriately. And I could go on. I warn all not to stay at this hotel!

10/10 Exceptional

Completely renovated and basically brand new! I loved the decor— minimalistic yet classy. I really loved the bathroom. We reserved the stream room and sauna which we also enjoyed. The food at the restaurant was very good. Perfectly located in walking distance to bus station, Old town and beach

Fabulous hotel but pay the extra money for a room with a window that doesn’t open out onto the ventilation shaft ...!! We didn’t know any better as it was our first time staying here....
