    5/5 Excellent

    The late check in was good for my wife and I as the message of where to obtain access was concise and clear. The room was clean and fresh and was all we needed for our stay plus the location was central.

    The property is in a good location and chek in after hours was easy. The condition of the room however was not great. The ceiling fan was caked with dust, the bedside lamp was broken and twisted. I went to use my towel after showering, which was dirty and stained. The room was very small, which was no issue for one night, but the cleanliness and maintenance of the property was very poor

    5/5 Excellent

    THE whole property is pretty good and in good condition. Very close to the gym and cinema. Also, it’s very close to all the restaurant and not far from the strand.

    No housekeeping. No wifi (still being "fixed" after being down for five days). One towel each for your whole stay. Room was very noisy, you heard every door slam, every person in the hall & everytime someone used the garbage shute. Extra "credit card surcharge" due to a "new business system" after I'd signed a document stating it would be otherwise. Poor experience for someone who was looking to enjoy their stay. Just don't book it.
