It was a nice hotel, located in a wrong neighborhood. The building acrossed the street had lots of drunk people yelling loud. I was unable to sleep until 2:00 AM. The girld in my room was dirty. She put her stuff everywhere and hung her panties on the bunk bed, making the room appeared as a homeless shelter. I recommend that you ask for a clean roommate and a room facing at the back of the building.
