Budget hotel

Great location, close to the waterfront and shopping areas
Good value, carpets worn, tiles chipped in bathroom but otherwise clean and adequate. Breakfast a bit disappointing as most fruit was canned, local seasonal fruits seemed to be sparce.

Once was more than enough!

Location, location, location
Disinterested staff. Faulty airconditioner that was never fixed. Room not made up one day when I got back at three. Tiny rooms. Their offer of "Free Wifi" is limited daily. Tired, stuffy hotel. Why stay there and pay so much when there are so many other hotels on offer.?
Zaman C. Solo travelers United Kingdom, February 24, 2014
Ruin the mood, not even 3 star

location, location, location
Paid soo much for 4 star but the hotel rooms, facilities are just or close to 3 star. One of the worst experiences as the staff performance ruin the mood. Booked the car 2 days earlier from travel desk, the person didn't have a clue on the day suppose to receive it. Complained to manager on duty, she listened as a courtesy and just walked away. Finally had to rush to Avis to get a car. Ordered airport taxi a day earlier than check out. When reached lobby and inquired, she replied casually "taxi will be here if u have ordered". Waited 15 minutes and asked again and finally she come to know taxi is waiting for 25 minutes already. Very layed back, care free and disappointing performance from staff. I will never stay there again.
