Great private rooms
Private room was lovely - modern and spacious with a great TV. However, the communal kitchen was cramped and dirty.

Good location and nice room, but very loud
We had a 4 person private room, which was very spacious, updated, and seemed clean! I appreciated that they gave us towels for free and replaced them each day! However, we were not able to sleep very well due to the noise in the courtyard. The music at the bar played very loudly until early morning and the door is not sealed so you can hear the people partying all night. I wouldn't recommend staying here if you want to get a good sleep throughout the week. There was a sign on our balcony doors saying there has been increased crime in the area, so we didn't feel very safe being on the ground floor. Also, the "free breakfast" includes toast or cereal, so I would not consider it breakfast at all and it seemed like we got gypped on that part. Overall, the location is great and walking distance to everything, so it wasn't an awful stay.
