6/10 Good

Not a nice experience, outdated facility, the washroom is not appealing at all, and main issue was the noise coming from the next rooms, if someone upstairs or next would flush the toilet it is so loud that wakes you up.

Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

Single rooms are very small, and the beds are on the hard side and the walls are thin. The hotel is older, but kept very clean. The neighborhood isn't the nicest (that's why it's cheaper), but it's not horrible either. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and there are bus stops very close by.

4/10 Fair

The sink and mirror are located inside the shower
The hotel seems ti be an existing apartment building which was transformed into hotel. The biggest surprise was to find the sink and mirror inside the shower which was undersized to begin with. This was a big minus. Breakfast was Ok but not great.
