Negative Reviews


Basic as well as outdated

All the guests said that the decor of the hotel is dated and in dire need of modernisation. The rooms wear a tired and shabby look, and some rooms also have some strange smell said the guests. The hotel is not worth the value because of its overall condition.


Small bathrooms

The en suite bathrooms are extremely small and with the wash basin being positioned strangely, there is hardly any place to move. Many rooms had just the bath tubs, showers and hairdryers were not present.


Poor connectivity

There is poor connectivity of TVs and Internet in the rooms. Guests said they were unable to watch TV in the room as the satellite TV barely received any signals. Moreover, some rooms didn't even have Wi-Fi and rest had negligible connectivity.
