Customer service needs improvement. The front desk is unavailable after you check in, so if you have an issue at some point during your stay, be prepared to suffer through it or sort it out yourself. Calls to the front desk, housekeeping, guest services should NEVER go unanswered. Do better.

I had booked a room for 2 adults and an 8 year old. The room was tiny and one double bed for all 3 of us to sleep in. There was no space in the room for a portable bed and staff not helpful. Room had air conditioning but so noisy we couldn’t put it on. We got little sleep and at £181 for the night not good value at all

Proximity to public transportation was good. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Staff and service in dining facilities were substandard and some were closed when noted they were supposed to be open. Numerous menu items unavailable.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Had a very bad experience of staying in this hotel, Room is very outdated and the toilet is terrible. The day when we checked-in found out toilet had not been cleaned properly, found previous guest belongings in the shower like dirty knickers and etc, after complaining to the reception about this they said they will send housekeeping to clean the room or will give us a different room which never happened. Duty Manager at that time name John was very rude to speak with us the guests, when we complained him after three times nobody from housekeeping came to clean the toilet. On top of this, the manager was being extremely vindictive telling us don’t lie be honest, when we said we will complain about his behaviour he said he didn’t care for his job he has two more other jobs, Duty Manager needs basic training how to speak with the guest and how to resolve the problem. The shower was very terrible, the water was clogged in the washbasin and bathtub shower-head was not working properly. Ruined our stay in that hotel. I have never been made to feel so humiliated over resolvable issue. My wife and kids were very upset over the treatment. Do not stay here.
