Negative Reviews


Entry after late hours an issue

Guests did not like that the main door is closed after late hours and can be opened only from the inside after ringing a bell. They have to wait in the freezing cold for a long time until someone opens the door and wish that they are given swipe cards to open doors on their own accord.


Noise from cleaning staff and night club

Guests say they find the cleaning staff noisy in the early mornings as they talk loudly and slam doors. The night club music is found intrusively loud by most guests and they could hear patrons fighting and breaking glasses.


Key cards not working

Some of the key cards of guests were not working. Mix-ups like guests given another room's key card took place many times. Guests said that the shower drainage in most rooms was terrible too.
