Traveled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service
It was a pleasant stay till we realized that 400$ was taken from our bags. The previous night we checked the money, the whole amount was there. After room service money was missing. We informed the reception immediately. The manager came and said he will check the camera footage that was around 5 pm. To my surprise i learned that the manager left home, when i asked the reception for updates. No updates whatsoever, felt no one was really caring about the situation. The money was carefully hidden inside the bag in 2 different places. Someone actually took the time to dig inside the bag and search for the money, and no one did anything about it. What kind of reputation and experience would the hotel gain form such behavior!!! Even after I escalated this matter the manager Omar went home without any updates, the IT guy who is supposed to show them camera footage wasn’t there. Till the moment no one addressed me no one really cared THIS HOTEL IS NOT SAFE AND STAFF CANNOT BE TRUSTED

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Do not stay here. Location perfect, amenities poor, fridge only works when you are in the room, air conditioning didn’t work, no hot water for the totally duration of my stay, and the receptionist tried to charge me $74 as tourism tax, and when I showed him that the tourism tax is only $1 a night he seemly said “oh sorry, you have already paid the tourism tax when I booked through Expedia” and he let me go. Avoid this place. Save your money for somewhere els.
