    Property condition


    • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
    • Disliked: Room comfort

    My room was small, but the location made up for it

    I was in a small room with a twin bed. The hotel lobby is on the 2nd floor. And the rooms are the floor above that. The elevators are very small and you have to use a flight of steps to get to them. Location is great with easy access to the city.
