Good location, pretty decor”

The facilities were generally pretty clean and the staff were helpful as expected.
Although I enjoyed the convenience of the bathrooms being all around, it could at times be noisy, that was more dependent on how the guests use them though.

Cozy and clean room, friendly staff, and enjoyable amenities. Quiet at night after 10pm. Low price, value for money. Close to the city centre. Beautiful view from the top balcony.
Not enough parking, located on hill. Bed in standard room is squeaking and no noiseproofing (can hear bed squeaking from next room). Other than that, everything was nice.
