It is really badly written and I can see nothing good in it. My first impulse is to delete it. You concur?
It's streets ahead of much of the stuff we get asked to review here. I did notice some typos - you could easily pick them up if you read the text out loud. You could also add an image at the top of the hub - an attractive image draws people in.
The main problem is, that there are probably a trillion pages on the same topic. If I were looking for a vacation guide, I'd skim right past any links to HP. If you could find some way to add a unique twist to the hub then it might stand a fighting chance.
Your biggest problem is that this is a bland read and no different from anything you can find a million other places. It would be much better if you described your own experiences there.
Another problem is that it does not seem focused. The blurb about coffee at the end just doesn't seem to fit because it is too specific.
I think you can save this one, but it will take a good deal of upgrading. Be careful, too, to make sure your ads match what you are talking about and are wide screen so that they will be properly placed in mobile apps.
Your best bet would be to divide this hub into separate sections and write a hub about each one.\
I agree with TT2 - it's well written as is all your stuff, BUT the subject matter is not engaging enough.
Travel articles always have lots of competition from specialist travel sites and Wikipedia. There's really no point in publishing a strictly factual article about a place, because your article won't be able to compete with those sites. Where you CAN compete is to add your own experience of the place, "secret" tips or "off the beaten track" tips etc.

I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an attempt to increase ranking?How do you deal with low-performing hubs?thanks in...

Over 1/4 of my hubs have not been moved to a niche site. They do not have much traffic from Google, so it is not HPs fault that they have not been selected. There is nothing wrong with them, but they do not have "Google love" so are only moved in the slow process where I ask HP to move...

Do you leave negative comments from readers on your articles?I delete spam but have left comments when a person doesn't agree with me. However, I have noticed I seem to be in the minority on this because when I've left a comment disagreeing with a person (this is not just on HubPages but on blogs...
