I would advise anyone and everyone to avoid this 'hotel'. On our arrival we had such rude service and had to ask the manager how to get to our room and for help with our bags as there was no lift. The bedsheets on the first night had splatters of blood on them and you could see bugs crawling on the walls, curtains and bed. We later discovered that these were bed bugs and when we asked to change rooms we were taken to 3 different ones as they all had bed bugs. Management were disgusting when it came to dealing with it and even refused to pay for medical expenses after 2 trips to the doctor where the bumps turned out to be SCABIES!! The manager had no sympathy for the situation and was completely rude and dismissive, later even denying that we caught scabies from there. Even the staff there said they wouldn't stay there! STAY AWAY from the Criterion!!!!
