excellent location, bars, restaurants ,travel agents all near by.
The staff were friendly and other than the dust and mess from the renovations the property was clean. The location is very central and convenient.
When we checked in we were taken to our room which was in the building opposite the Reception. The room was nothing like the pictures, the bed frames were rusty, the wallpaper was coming away from the walls, the bathroom was tiny and it was very run down. The picture on this app showed a nice, modern room. We checked in at 10PM after a pretty long flight so we were quite tired and there were tradies using power tools right outside our room. The air-conditioning unit wasn't working so the room was very hot, at this point I requested another room similar to what I'd actually booked where we could relax and try to get some sleep. We were given a smaller room with smaller beds but as it was further from the noise and the aircon worked we took it. I was told that the management had changed 2 days prior to our stay hence the late night renovations however I still don't see why that was necessary. They started back on the power tools at 7am the next morning which was really annoying after finally getting to sleep in the early hours of the morning.
We came at ~21:00. Had a booking “deluxe room with 1 large bed and balcony”. Staff tried to give us room without balcony and twin bed, much lower quality than deluxe. It was even located in other building. When I asked for room we booked, staff said no rooms left, they can’t give anything else. Only after hour and a half we had a call to manager of hotel. And suddenly it appears that our room is in other building, that was closed. And even after that they gave us room without balcony, and with bad WiFi, we checked in because really had no more time and strength to argue. Do not recommend this place.
The room had everything we needed and the staff was very friendly. The air conditioning worked!!
They don't have an elevator and sometimes the bathroom was a little bit smelly.
It’s hard to be too critical at my time of stay during the virus hitting the hardest everybody was in panic mode including the hotel staff so it’s not fair to judge the bathroom and the shower were great the bed was comfortable and the location was good
Again it was during the virus outbreak everybody was in panic mode things were shutting down the staff was shorthanded not fair to judge completely but one thing I did not like was when they clean the room they turned off the air-conditioning and open the windows it made the hotel room like a hotbox I cannot even stay in the room until it cooled down after 45 minutes that they could’ve done better for sure
