The Bad
While the majority of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of common complaints about the lack of elevator and air conditioning, and noise transfer.

Some guests had complaints about the hotel's stairs and lack of air-conditioning. These guests felt the hotel would be better-suited for young patrons, who would not be bothered by climbing the stairs or the lack of air-conditioning in the summer months.

Noise transfer was reported by a few reviewers. They described street noise when the bars let out at 4am and recommended guests book rooms at the back of the hotel.
