    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Awful service, felt very much like the priority was to save money by using travellers as workers. Insects in the kitchen, generally grimy. Room was a box slightly bigger than the bed. Recommended not staying here if you can help it.

      I didn't like the fact that although Expedia said bank details were only in case we didn't show up, and we paid when we were there, this was not the case. I was booked in for entry at 1pm 6th March. My bank account was accessed and accommodation cost was removed at 1.51am(yes the middle of the night). I've traveled around the world and never had this happen before. As this is my first time I've used Expedia, I'm wondering, does this only happen with Expedia bookings, because I will definitely think twice about booking through Expedia again.

        Skip this place like the plague.

        While it was a private room, the entire place smelled nasty. I stayed one night and slept with my clothes on. I couldn’t put myself through a second night, just lost the money and moved to a hotel. There is only WiFi in the reception desk area and not in the rooms. Management didn’t care about the issues either.
