Great location. Well priced. Easy to get to city. Can be noisy at nights with bar down stairs. Staff friendly and helpful. Clean and great adherence to covid protocols.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Rooms require constant cleaning. There should be a obligation for tenants to shower at least one per week. As well people being shameless to having loud sexual relations even when all the roomates were in rest time at 2 am. For some reason not having access to the kitchen in night hours having the excuse to not letting you go inside a club that shares common areas with the hotel. So you can't drink a glass of water after 10 pm because they're thinking you're trying to smuggle into the club. No even have any decent game area or pool .

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Nice and clean and friendly staff, although severe confusion when I didn’t have a physical credit card (I don’t know anyone that carries these anymore?), and needs a more powerful air conditioning unit in room during summer.
