  • 4.0.Fair

    The hotel is very dated and old - broken blinds and windows, old carpet, small rooms. We changed to a slightly better room, but the whole hotel is in need of modernisation. Overall, we were disappointed with our stay, but breakfast was excellent.

    So so

    The rooms were tired and shabby but very clean . The check in was indifferent and there was no parking left on site . Breakfast was nice but we would not book there again.

    Disappointed sorry

    A little disappointed actually. The parking that we paid for was very tight, one car took up two spaces , and we ended up parking on the street. The room was small, pretty tired looking, stained broken blinds at the windows, although the room was clean. The bed had roll together, and there was no air conditioning! They did provide a fan which was some consolation but still so hot we had to have the only window that opened, open. Then of course we had the street noise to contend with. When we talked to Reception about the parking they insisted there was enough room, so we didn’t argue but left our car on the street. Sorry but would not recommend.

    Disappointing stay

    This property needs a shake up. I was happy that I got an early check in. The rooms are old and dated. The poor cleaning needed a mention in that on lifting the toilet lid, there was still urine in it from the previous person, plus a half finished drink in the fridge. The noise from the close motorway was terrible with boy racers screaming up and down most of the night. There was no air con and only one of the windows stayed up (open). They offered a complimentary breakfast but on seeing this, I chose to eat in town. There are much better options of accommodation in this city.....don’t stay here!

    Comfortable, handy, breakfast.

    Great staff, happy, polite, quick helpful service. Great breakfast. Very comfy bed. Handy to walk down to central city area. Only $7.25 for an Uber to save your uphill walk back after walking all day. A old hotel, but clean, reasonable price and handy to Cuba street restaurants. Would stay again. Need to update their info in room, that says there is a lounge area with bar, bar snacks and light meals available. This wasn’t the case. But very nice Chinese restaurant/takeaway, across the road. Beautiful dinner there.
