  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I read many reviews raving about this place and I think under different circumstances I would’ve liked it, however outside across the street was littered with refugees on sidewalk which didn’t make us feel safe despite the gated entrance. But what bothered me even more was when we checked into the room, the beds were made but there was trash on the floor and the waste basket, and I saw a cockroach where the coffee maker was and two more by the door. I called and was moved to a different room but that was a horrible first impression. In the morning the manager reached out and offered to switch to one of the sister hotels, but we left and went to another hotel. We got our money for the remaining days refunded and checked into another hotel. At least the breakfast was ok!
