Negative Reviews

Parking Problems

While there is free parking advertised on-site, guests warn that the number of spots are limited – there are only about ten of them. In addition, guests added that it is a first-come, first-served arrangement so spots can't be reserved.

Slow Lift

The hotel's elevator left many guests annoyed, as it travels very slowly, and is very small. As a result, guests say the queue to use the elevator take a while. While most travellers would have been happy to take the stairs, the staff supposedly does not allow this unless there's an emergency.

No Breakfast

Many guests were disappointed to learn that the hotel does not serve a breakfast. However, upon getting to know the area, people said that there are plenty of dining options right outside the hotel.
