For the rate of about 55 pounds a night for a private bath we were not expecting much. However, the toilet barely worked, forcing us to use the one downstairs. The floor was dirty and there were some disgusting stains on the sheets. It was not possible to adjust the heat in the rooms and the front desk would not...

I first heard of the Boka on my last morning in Wales, leaving for London as last leg of my big trip to the centre of the universe. My friends husband and I spent the morning trawling the internet to find good accomodation at low to reasonable pricing ie... budget. The blurb online was encouraging, as was the street photo...

We weren´t expecting much for the price but nothing could have prepared us for what met our eyes. To begin with the manager wanted us to pay in cash even though it said clearly online that they accepted creditcards! We had to ask for towels and our TV was broken. Our room was on the ground floor next to the...

I told reception and they gave me a towel to pick it up in!!! The restaurant is filthy too. We were offered breakfast as part of the package, but...

We had a horrific but hilarious night at the Boka. My suspicions about the quality of this hotel were raised when we (there were 3 of us) had to step over the various people sitting on the reception floor drinking whisky & eating lychees. I think they were 'staff' but could have lived there. Our room alledgedly had en-suite seperated...

I cant understand why people are criticising Boka Hotel. The cost of staying at the hotel per night was reasonable, considering the locality of the hotel. I was impressed with the room. The bedroom was clean and the friendliness of the staff was excellent. Ive stayed at Boka Hotel 3 times and have never been disappointed. The Boka Hotel's website...

The boka hotel is well known in the area, and generally the price marketed to on line booking travellers is very different from its 'market rate' needless to say, it 's better sleeping rough, pop into a fast food in the mornig, avaiding so the poisonous breakfat, to start. not worth the on line prices, nobody would coin into it

If you choose to stay here - - well just don't! If you are forced to stay here, then be sure to take your bug spray, some bedding to replace the worn out and shredded stuff supplied, a shelf of Dictionaries to assist translation into a variety of foreign languages to communicate with the other guests, and finally some more...
