Guest reviews for Grand Hotel Elite

3 out of 5
Close to bus stops (5 min) and the town center. Room flooring had gaps in the laminate pieces. Beds were very, very firm. AC was barely keeping up with the summer heat. Window blinds were good for black out. AC around common areas not good and it was very hot. WiFi free but not strong so unusable and not worth it even for free price.

3stars max hotel, 70s style( odd style )

Hard to say this is 4 star hotel. Only shower/shampoo available. Small reception, however staff was ok and helpfull. Room has no taste in my opinion and had issues with floor, had gaps between laminated wood tiles. Breakfast was ok, nothing special.
