    Noisy and smokey

    The room was ok. Not what I expected. Smaller than I though. Bathroom could have been cleaned better. The real annoyance was the amount of traffic in the hallways and corridors at all hours. People outside loud talking and smoking and it was very difficult to stay soundly asleep.

    little bit of water was coming out of the sink. The couch cushions were full of dirt spots. The bed comforters looked old and worn out from so much washing that there were still stains on them. The bathtub had stains on it.The breakfast was good and staff were pleasant . The bed and pillow were comfy. Great cable channels.
