We had three single beds even though we were a couple. Our shower pressure was so poor it took me almost 30 minutes to wash my hair. The water kept changing from really hot to really cold in an instant. Very uncomfortable. Food isn't the best quality but doable for a day of sightseeing. You do get kicked out of...

This hotel had a great location but was very basic. The beds were comfortable and the shower was very powerful!! However, the tv had bad signal so we could only watch one channel. The wifi signal was rubbish and we could only access this in certain parts of the room. The carpet was grubby and torn in places. It was...

Great location, walking distance to everything. Very glad the room had a ceiling fan as it was very hot at night & this helped us to sleep. Very basic rooms. Wifi terrible, kept dropping off all the time. Breakfast not good. Most staff were friendly & helpful but not the woman at the front counter on our last day, quite...

I stayed here only for 2 nights while on a Contiki tour and found the location of the hotel excellent. The TV in our room was very poor quality also wifi worked sometimes but usually dropped out. The rooms were quite basic and probably in need of renovating but overall it was still alright for a few nights. The breakfast...

Stayed for 2 nights to meet up with family members staying from overseas. Hotel was central, but needs to be updated & modernised. Our room had not been serviced when we returned at 4 pm, but shortly after the housekeeping staff offered to replace our towels, & coffee sachets. TV has very limited channels. Our room was upstairs and as...

This hotel is in bad need of a refurbishment.On their web site the hotel is rated 3 1/2 star which is over generous at best it would be 2 1/2 star. The staff show rude tendency toward us as we left 1 day earlier and had them refund us due to sub standard accommodation.
