The Plumbing Can be Problematic

Many guests said that they had problems with the plumbing in their en-suite bathrooms. Some had issues with the toilets, while others couldn't get enough water pressure in the shower. Several guests also reported that the pipes make knocking noises when in use.

The Hotel Needs Some Basic Maintenance

Several guests said that the hotel obviously needs some basic maintenance. Some of the bathroom tiles need to be redone, and the walls need some fresh paint. So, expect your room to look a little run down when you stay there.

Some of the Rooms Are Quite Small

Many guests said that certain rooms of the hotel are quite small. In fact, some guests said that they didn't have enough room to unpack their bags. So, particularly if you are travelling with a spouse or companion, expect the room to be a little cramped.
