The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were some common complaints about the rooms, noise transfer and airport shuttle.

While the majority of guests were pleased with their clean and comfortable accommodations, some reviewers had complaints about their rooms. They reported worn and dated decor, musty smells and no mini-fridge or microwave in the rooms.

Noise disruptions were mentioned by a few lodgers. They complained of noise from guests in the hallways, as well as noise from the restaurant next door and noisy in-room air-conditioning units.

Guest Recommendations
"We used this hotel after flying in from Buenos Aires and arrived at 7 am. They allowed us to go into the room immediately and stay until the following day at 1 pm when we were to catch a plane at 4 pm. They only charged us for one night. Their shuttle picked us up and returned us to the airport. Their restaurant personnel were most friendly including the cook."
