Handy to down town
It was nice and adequate, quite comfortable and clean but our room not quite as good as what was shown in the photo. Decor was a bit dated and a little bit cramped. The TV had to be watched from the Bed even though there was a nice comfy sofa I guess the room wasn't big enough for a different layout.
