Negative Reviews


Small rooms showing age

The rooms at the Calypso Hotel were somewhat of a regular grievance for former visitors. Along with some of the rooms being attributed as small, the accommodations were described as dated and displaying signs of wear and tear.


No lift available

Various past guests were disappointed about the absence of a lift at the hotel. This especially proved to be a problem for those that were staying on the third floor of the building - although it has been said that the staff will be happy to help with carrying bags to every room.


Noise can prove to be a problem

Whilst the Calypso Hotel is positioned in a prime location, this does come with one reportedly negative aspect: noise. Previous visitors have stated that disruptive external noise can be an issue throughout the night when staying at the hotel.
