Positive Reviews


Cozy bar, great staff

The lovely little bar area makes guests feel warm and welcome. They offer an extensive selection of drinks, and guests said they could quite comfortably spend the entire evening soaking up the atmosphere. The staff here are able to juggle an array of duties with a smile on their faces.


Excellent location

With a location like this one, almost all travellers felt it was ideal if you love being among all the action. The hotel is easily accessible if you are walking in from the train station, and if you love the night life, then there are many bars and restaurants within walking distance too.


Easy on the pocket

If you feel you need to stay within a budget, then this location will do just fine. Guests were pleased with the economically priced rooms, and enjoyed the little extra cash they had left over.

Negative Reviews


Not all rooms have toilets

Some of the rooms at this hotel have shared toilets, and you have to walk outside your room to get there. Most visitors did not like this arrangement, and would have preferred an en suite room with a bathroom to themselves.


Really tiny rooms

Guests felt the rooms were way too small for the average couple, or even for a solo traveller. According to most visitors, you will struggle to find enough space to pack away your clothes, and there is limited space to stretch out and relax.


No air-con

The hotel does not have any climate control throughout the property, and visitors who were there in the warmer months were not pleased at all. There is a ceiling fan installed in all the rooms which helped a bit.
