Great location, excellent history and great staff. The area is surrounded by wonderful nightlife and can get a little loud with the party

6/10 Good

Loud music
Great location, nice rooms but loud music plays until 2-3 am every night - very hard to get a good nights sleep

6/10 Good

We had a high expectation regarding our stay. However, we found the hotel smelly, with a strong smell to humidity. The room was clean and it was refresh every day. The attention was not good. The attendance were slow when an issue arise, for example, our room did not lock the door, after three attempts for solving, the issue was low battery. They had an event for the company in the hotel and the made us to feel unwelcome when using the pool, even when we paid the full rate. In general the service was nice, polite but slow and hesitant to accommodate properly

2/10 Poor

Waste of money
Terrible property. We booked one night, they had a party with super loud music all night so we couldn’t sleep and they shut down power for maintenance in the morning. They should have told me beforehand so I could decide if I wanted to stay during their party and maintenance affair. I want my money back. Also the room had a terrible humidity stain

8/10 Very Good

Good but not quite as good as last time
Second stay here and would probably stay again. Not quite as good as the first time. The staff were excellent however the hotel has a few issues. The elevator is terrible. There is only one and not only is it slow but unreliable. Multiple times I would push a particular floor and then halfway there, it would cancel and then head in the opposite direction. My room also has some pretty bad water damage on part of the floor. Fleet like my foot may go straight through. Notified the start and they said they would look into it. Neither of these things would stop me staying there as the staff and the hotel in general are really great. Rooftop pool and jacuzzi are great.
