Service and Staff
Property condition



WOULD NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN. No wifi in the room. Window above the door, so light from the corridor shines into the room all night. No toilet roll. Soil in the rusty old bath. No shower. Sign on the bathroom door about disposing of used condoms. Lift doesn't stop at the floor correctly, so there's large gap to step up into the lift. Check out took ages as receptionist didn't want to take card payment or issue a tax receipt (but did eventually). Receptionist doesn't speak good English and seems incapable of using a phone or a watch correctly. Booked a pick-up from the airport after the last domestic arrival. Airport was closed, taxi rank empty and had to wait alone in the dark for an hour. Requested a discount for drop-off at the airport the next morning due to the inconvenience caused and was told this wasn't possible. Drive from airport took 50 minutes, not the 20 minutes advertised.


Cons: Clean the rooms and make sure there is toilet paper in the bathroom. Don't advertise that there is wifi.

Location: Middle of nowhere outside the city.

Stayed 1 night in Aug 2018


Would rather pay more for something better

Not as advertised

Hotel is new and clean. Decorated well. Staff is very friendly. Internet did not work on my floor. I needed the internet because I was there working. No satellite/cable TV access as advertised. jet tub not working. No mini bar in room as advertised. Restaurant service staff is slow. Finally, the price advertised on Expedia was not the price I paid. After booking, the price was shown as higher than advertised.

Pros: Clean enough. Staff nice. Location was good for my work.

Cons: Restaurant needs better service and food quality. Make sure that the internet and cable tv packages are paid and ready for gues

Location: Industrial area. Good if you have business in the area.


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

All around, terrible

Service was terrible, shower was dirty, bathroom was not clean at all and many of things not working, like light, no towels (even after requesting it several times), tub was rusted and molded. Room was hot, A/A was not working appropriately, breakfast not available at the indicated time, and so on. If you can avoid this please, I would recommend you try to find another better one.
