    Very good 8.0
    Beautiful old building but noisy.
    Beautiful art deco styled hotel, only issue being that the windows have not been double glazed so rooms facing the street are very noisy, a local bar near by sounds like it is in your room and drunken singing continues to all hours and then you are woken early by garbage trucks, traffic and chatter. Pool is small but sufficient, could do with a clean. One afternoon pool was closed for a photoshoot 🤔

    Very good 8.0
    Small and cozy with a great location
    The hotel looked quirky just like a boutique hotel should be. The room was small, but it was cozy and comfortable. The only downside was the bathroom, the toilet was situated right next to the shower, and by that I mean when you shower, the entire toilet area including the toilet paper will get wet! But that’s minor for me, service was also great, the staff were helpful! For the price, it was well worth it and would come back again.

    Comfortable in Little Ind
    New hotel with some teething problems, 1st room no hot water but quickly resolved by ops manager and receptionist moving us to another (larger) room.

    Good 6.0
    Average stay
    It is my fault that didn’t check what kind of the room did I book. I never expect it was a women hostel..the room is not clean and I saw bugs here. Staff are helpful and nice.

    Fair 4.0
    Bad customer Service
    Too small room. Management are unprofessional they even don’t allow guest check in half an hour early although room is ready. They want you pay $15.00 every hour
