The room I had was just fabulous for the length of stay I had. (12 days) It had everything I needed, I was able to cook myself a meal when I felt like staying in. I was within walking vicinity to all I wanted to access in the city and bus service was only minutes away. Staff was happy and friendly and helpful.
