The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints among them about the rooms and noise.

Some guests found their rooms to be in need of upgrading. Their complaints mentioned outdated furniture, carpets, and bathroom fixtures. Some reviewers found the standard rooms to be too small, though the majority of guests were pleased with their rooms. It should be noted, however, that there are different types of rooms at this hotel in two different sections. The more positive experiences tended to be in the main section of the hotel (where the lobby was) as opposed to the hotel's annex, which may explain the differing opinions regarding the accommodations.

Some reviewers had complaints about noise transfer within the hotel. They cited noise from a pub on the corner and the hotel's bar, loud air conditioning units, and general street noise. One guest said it would be necessary to shut the windows at night to avoid the street noise.
