    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    It is convenient and walking distance to my faculty. However, there isn't any wifi and it is hard to adjust the cold and hot water.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Overall this is good value for money place located close to the AIS. The property was clean but worn. Reception was friendly and efficient, quick to respond to our request for the right amount of towels. Short walk to food, convenience store and a uni bar. About a 20 minute drive from city centre. We would stay here again.
