Comfort Stay and Clean
I booked a single room and it was a comfort stay at this place. Everything was good but if something really want to improve, probably will be the sound proof... there was a groups of youngsters stay at same floor which a bit noisy till 12 a.m. and early morning 6 a.m. their leader knock their doors very loudly for morning call... and he wake me up.
