Negative Reviews


Wi-Fi signal is sometimes weak

Several guests mention that they were unable to access the Wi-Fi in their room or found the signal so weak that it was virtually useless. The signal seems strongest in the lobby, so it may be worth requesting a room closer to this area.


Breakfast may not impress

The free breakfast at the hotel is often described as distinctly average. There's nothing too awful about it, but it hardly seems anything to get excited about either. Also, the same items appear on the buffet day after day, so you may get bored.


Problems with the air-conditioning

A number of reviews indicate there is some dissatisfaction with the air-conditioning units at the hotel. Some guests simply describe them as excessively noisy while others found them inefficient and unable to cool the rooms sufficiently.
