Decent Budget hotel
Posted Jun 1, 2016
The location is the best part, everything within walking distance. The hotel is old and could use a renovation, but fine for budget travel or those who do not spend too much time in the hotel room. Many of the rooms smell like cigarette smoke, whether they are 'non-smoking' or not. Our first room was like an old ashtray, and even the A/c unit seemed to blow out smoke, probably because the filter had never been changed. However the woman at the front was incredibly accommodating when we asked to switch rooms, and allowed us to check 3 other empty rooms to find one more suitable and less stuffy. It ended up being a room without a balcony as we had requested and already paid for, and we were not offered a refund at all for the difference in room price. The bathroom was fine, but no bathtub and no separate shower; instead, the toilet and shower were together with just a flimsy curtain in between. Price considered, it was fine-- not great, not terrible. It would not be my first option if returning but not ruled out completely either.
