Negative Reviews


Atmosphere is Lacking

Many of the guests who stay here find that despite the magnificent views, cosy rooms, and friendly atmosphere, there isn't anything in particular that makes this hotel stand out as unique or special. In particular, some guests feel that although the rooms are comfortable, the décor is a bit tired and could probably use an upgrade.


Unreliable Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi at the hotel is patch and inconsistent, so if you must be connected to the Internet during your stay, you may need to plan for a backup method to get a signal.


Noises Travel Easily

Some guests have mentioned that the walls in this hotel seem to be on the thin side, and thus allow noises to pass through rather easily. You may want to keep this in mind if you're a light sleeper.
