6/10 Good

The property is very old and the room was small. The room had a very large wardrobe which wasted the small amount of space available. Poor room design.

6/10 Good

Remember that you get what you pay for. For $45 per night, this was actually an excellent value and it included a breakfast buffet. The hotel was very clean and the staff was attentive. That said, the overpowering stench of a strong "floral" room "deodorizer" (like Glade or something like that) in my room nearly suffocated me upon arrival and very nearly caused me to change hotels. When I called the front desk, the response was to send someone up with another can of a different scent! Luckily between the open window, the air conditioning and the 11 hours in which I was out of the room, it had subsided enough to remain in the room and sleep. The room was very small and needed some refurbishing but again, for the price, it was fine. Overall, for one night, to sleep and shower in, this was fine and a good value. My rating would be higher except for the room spray - I am someone who is not bothered by scents and always wear perfume. For me to complain about this, (something that I have never noticed or complained about anywhere else before) means that it was very strong and a significant issue.

Nice Small Boutique Hotel
This was a last-minute reservation because of an unplanned change in flight times non-stop to the US, which was most likely due to a major rainstorm. Boutique hotel. Room was not as sleek and photogenic and modern as the lobby, but not necessary for a comfortable night. Nice fresh hot and cold breakfast with exceptional and attentive staff with a great selection of fresh fruits and beverages, including tea options. Good restaurant options just outside the door as well as shopping.
