value for money budget hotel
The staff were lovely and friendly and accommodating. The check in was quick, The location was ideal for bus routes to all over the island. Good location for older travellers, ie not the 18-25 age group as the area was a bit quieter than some, but if we wanted something busy then it was a very short bus ride away. A good choice of local restaurants within walking distance and a bit of younger nightlife too. Housekeeping cleaned and made beds everyday if the do not disturb sign wasn't up. Really happy that soap, shampoo, even a shower hat and a kettle, tea and coffee supplied. Pools were pleasant in the basement and top floor.
Housekeeping didn't give enough time from knocking to opening the door when we forgot to put out the Do not disturb signs. - no explanation when we checked in that this was the case but once we sussed it, no further problems. The hotel probably needs refurbishing, but for the price we paid it was more than adequate. Insufficient plug sockets - none near the bed so we had to unplug the TV and fridge to charge our phones, not really a problem though as we werent using the TV & fridge. The lifts were small and the landings by the lifts sometimes didn't have lights on but the corridors did. Beds by the pools needed renewing, bit grubby looking and the pool area on the roof needed a bit of TLC as did the plants around the hotel.
This place is a dump. I wouldn't recommend someone I didn't like to come here.
The staff was rude and crotchety, the towels in the room were dirty and stained, the room lacked pillows that were usable to sleep with. The ac barely did anything, and there was black mould around the ac and the air vent. The safe was present in the room, however the locking mechanism that made it more than a steel box was not in the room. The mini fridge was also present, but alas the door on it was broken and the thing was so old the back of it churned out heat. The lobby of the hotel was about 45 Celsius, and the elevators old and rickety. All of the carpets we saw in the hotel were old and stained so badly you couldn't see what colour they were in the past. At best a 1.5 star hotel, I'm shocked they didn't rent rooms by the hour.
The lobby of the hotel is renvovated to look nice and welcoming, but when you arrive to the rooms the halls are dark and damp. Many of the floors smell like chlorine. I didn't find the staff very helpful or accommodating. Beware wifi is not free.
