    • 2.0.Poor

      You’ll be surprise, as the picture of the hotel in the site is nothing like the real thing. Roaches in the room, towels with holes, terrible in general. Location is good, but a super sketchy area.

    • 4.0.Fair

      This is one of the worst hotels I stayed for the price $99, I paid for a room. run down type room with dirty looking bathroom with dim light and small size. The Breakfast was awful just one serving of everything. So, don't pay for the Breakfast here. There were hardly anyone here, yet they couldn't give a better service.

      Nice rooms with ideal location

      This little hotel is an ideal stay if you have business to do in the center. The location is perfect although on weekends there is a disco across from the hotel and you need earplugs. But the windows are super thick and the hotel provides really goid earplugs. The free breakfast is wonderful and the rooms are great. Just make sure they don't give you a room with no windows.

    • 8.0.Very Good

      This is a budget hotel with amenities worth the money spent. I had a room without windows, but that turned out to be great! The only downside to the hotel is that it is across from a clu with music all night long. I always have the tv going all night ag a low level so it was no issue for me. I will stay agai.

      Helpful staff

      Hotel and room clean and tidy. Scrambled eggs bacon, rice and beans Breakfast was available from 7am. Excellent location to access town centre. Reception staff very helpful in arranging tours and assisting with any issues. They also arranged to have a filled roll ready for an early departure before the kitchen was open, which was highly appreciated. Street outside our unit was busy and a bit of traffic noise was intrusive.
