Quick stay

Location, quiet, small
Average. I found the lodgeto be 2 star. Some of the rooms were being renovated so a paint smell was still lingering. My room was small. However of feel that the cleanliness could have been alot better also stains on the sheets and towels were off putting. The staff were friendly.

Mediocre hotel in a great location.

We arrived and found the door locked, lights out. We were given a small room, despite the fact that larger rooms were available and not occupied. The hotel does not have wifi.

Small rooms, worst shower experience

Good location for nightlife and shopping, but I cannot recommend this hotel due to the small rooms and odd bathrooms

Absolutely Awful!

Location is the only thing this hotel has going for it - and that's NOT enough...
This hotel had previous owners who gave a damn (I stayed in 2010 and liked it enough to come back), and now has new owners who simply do not. The place is in a state of disrepair, has terrible management, incompetent and unsupervised cleaning staff, and no capacity for customer service. It's simply a disaster, and I recommend you avoid it at all costs. There are much better addresses in the area.

Over-priced..poor maintenance...Dont stay here !

None...many better value places in DeWaterkant
poorly maintained...was smart when renovated 5 years ago, but now weel below standard for the high price. many broken items in room, tv not clear, rooftop pool was green and dirty ! entry on agoda says roof top pool and lounge is for use of guests...instead many large parties of outside people were held on many night...very noisy drunk people till sleep dewaterkant historical village has many choices of nice places which are much better value and quality than this !
