Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Clean, mostly quiet, friendly service, but the rooms were tiny (basically just room for the pods and our bags). Unfortunately we were assigned a room that was right behind the lit hotel sign, so there was bright light coming in through the windows all night. There is also no way to control lighting or heat in the rooms, you have to ask the reception to do it for you. Not the biggest issue, as the pods are well separated and the curtains block the light. But still inconvenient.
