6/10 Good

The hotel was shown in Exedia as having an air-conditioning system which is not true. Breakfast was very basic.

From the beginning to the end, it was a bad experience in dealing with Red Ruby, and I would never recommend any travelers to visit the website or stay with your hotel.

2/10 Poor

The room they have on the image and the one they put you in as a standard are completely different. When you as them the staff brings a paper to prove that’s what you rented online and rudely stops you there. This place is terrible for no restaurant service and hotel service. Simply the worst hotel experience ever in westlands.

2/10 Poor

Terrible Experience
I booked through expedia but the staff at reception could not locate my booking and was asking for printed evidence and payment. Guess they are not used to online bookings. The beddings were torn and stained. There was loud disturbing noise early in the morning from the restaurant and had no choice but to wake up. Will never consider the hotel again leave alone mentioning it to a friend.

Séjour magnifique
Bonjour, J'ai trouvé qu'au niveau de la restauration, les aliments étaient un peu fades.
