Novak Djokovic’s hotel called ‘seedy’ and ‘grungy’ in brutal TripAdvisor reviews

The hotel where Novak Djokovic is being detained has previously received several brutal reviews from disgruntled guests on TripAdvisor.

The Serbian tennis star was transferred to The Park Hotel in central Melbourne after his visa to play in the Australian Open was cancelled.

Djokovic had been granted a medical exemption for his vaccination status to compete in the tournament by Tennis Australia before travelling, but the ruling was rejected the country's Border Force.

Although he avoided immediate deportation, the world number one is now being kept in a guarded room while he awaits an appeal hearing next Monday.

And if the reviews are anything to go by, he's not having a great time.

One person wrote: "Really seedy. The photos convey such a false impression. Rooms are small and grungy.

"Would never go back and recommend everyone avoid it. The place is dirty and poorly cleaned and the rooms are noisy. Absolutely c***."

They weren't the only unhappy camper, with another declaring: "Disappointed and disgusted. Dirty and smelly room. Shower was gross. Holes in towels. Non working tv, controls with battery acid leaking out of it.

"So disappointed RYDGES you should be ashamed to put your name on this building NOT DISABILITY FRIENDLY AT ALL."

What do you think the outcome will be for Djokovic? Let us know in the comments section.

A third visitor added: "The building is very old. Has a moldy smell through out the hotel. Pool always dirty, lift doesn't always work.

"No drinking water in room, you have to drink the water from mini bar (which is charged)."

Djokovic will have bigger concerns to worry about than forking out for a bottle of water, as his visa fiasco could have significant ramifications.

Reports from Australia have indicated he could be banned from entering the country for three years if his appeal is unsuccessful.

The Park Hotel has previously housed government detainees and was in the news last month when it emerged that nearly 40 refugees were currently there.

Activists, who were fighting for the refugees' release, described it as a 'hotel prison'.

While those inside the hotel held up a sign that read: "Stop the torture centre."

Asylum seekers have claimed they were given meals with maggots and mould to eat.
