Verified Reviews of 816 Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Not so good, overall!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The staff was friendly, but almost all were new and not very well informed. The room was clean, but with lots of quirks: sliding door of bathroom kept coming off bottom hinge which meant the door wouldn't close; the hot/cold water was reversed in shower and sink, which would have been fine if someone told me ahead of time instead I waited for it to 'warm up', panicked thinking there was no hot water for a shower, had to call the front desk and ended up running very late as a result; a family member had their smoke alarm go off in the middle of the night because the heater in their room started smoking. All in all, I wouldn't go there again, I regret having my friends/family stay there especially given how much it cost.
