8/10 Very good

I have stayed in this hotel for 4 days. Very good location and friendly staff. The hotel didn’t have and iron to iron my clothes. That was very frustrating for me. I’ve never stayed in a place where there’s no iron. Also they took so long to provide service. If you are looking for location this hotel Is great! In terms of service not so much.

6/10 Good

The hotel has a nice breakfast. The room beds were small, and the room was a little dusty. The front desk could use some more training to address clients’ questions. We felt really unsafe around the property. For the price, we could have stay in a area with more security going around.
