Friendly staff, parking available, comfortable. The room door isn't that sound proofing, kind of noisy when others are laughing out loud while walking pass on the corridor.
Good central location, spacious room (we stayed in a studio apartment), comfortable bed. The only downside was that the air conditioning didn’t work very well.
Nice room with what looks like renovated bathroom. The bathroom sink took a little while to drain out. A tea towel would've been handy but otherwise a pleasant stay.
A bit difficult to locate when the name is not the same as the booking Sheet.. Rooms are very clean but the bathrooms are a little on the small side for a large person. Overall though it was an enjoyable stay.
