Good location, dated hotel rooms and faulty appliances
The hotel's location is it's strongest point, and generally most of the staff are pleasant and helpful. However the rooms are dated and many require a fair amount of work to make it respectable. It was my first stay here and I went through a total of 4 rooms as the air-conditioning was not working in all the said rooms. Very frustrating that although the first call was made at approximately 2pm, we reached a solution only at 10.30pm that night.
