4/5 Good

It's a nice price for the ac commendations
It is as expected. We got our private unit with kitchen and bathroom.
Stayed 1 night in Aug 2019

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
You don't talk about Fight Club
Very cramped. Almost hostel like. A German guest got into a physical confrontation with some Spanish or Portuguese guests in the middle of the night which was very unsettling to my children. No concierge or supervision after certain hours

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
Credit card overcharged
Regarding my stay, nothing outstanding to say, it was average compared to other places. However, upon my booking, I was overcharged by the property compared to the price indicated on my expedia booking. I tried to request for a plausible explanation and none was provided by the property, all that the owner told me it was due to exchange fees which is incorrect.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Nice, basic room
It was a nice, basic room, but the roof leaked on one of the beds, which dampened our spirits a bit
