Loud elevator that needs to be fixed
I had the pleasure of carrying my heavy luggage up a flight of stairs because the elevator doesn't work for the 1st floor apparently. But I did have the pleasure of hearing that loud elevator carrying the staff and guests up to the 2nd floor quite frequently. I think the hotel is ok, clean but a tiny bed and only wifi in the cold lobby. For the price I think there should be better service of some kind.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Acceptable
All we needed was a shower and a bed. Hotel delivered this. Burger from room service after long long day for Comrades marathon really hit the spot! There was an issue with bill from Reception which forced us to return to the hotel to sort out, which was quite frustrating.

Good3.0 / 5
need improvement
had a good stay but there was a irritating noise from the hand basin after use or the neighbours upstairs have used their basin. The carpet has a particular smell even when cleaned. Somebody trying to open the door at 3am. Tea making not enough for two people. Rates too expensive for what you get (only taken out of desperation). Other than the disturbing next door neighbours it is fairly quite. Build a wall between the "police yard" for privacy of ground floor rooms.
