4/5 Good

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

Pros: The staff was wonderful! It is located in a great neighborhood with cafes and shops right around the corner. There are a number of underground stops nearby. Cons:I had read the reviews and knew that we needed to bring earplugs. It is loud until quite late. This isn't a place for someone who needs quiet to sleep/rest.
