  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This property was clean and the breakfast each morning was wonderful. Also they offer guests a wi-Fi hotspot which was truly a lifesaver when exploring the city.

Great location - beware of very loud rooms

Warning: if you want two twin beds, you will be on the extremely noisy walk-street side of the building. We barely got any sleep on a Friday night because it was so loud. It was somewhat better during the week, but still LOUD!
