1/5

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Towels and sheets were yellow not white - the room felt not clean. People were screaming in the hall way in the middle of the night

2/5

  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Amenities

No family friendly. The terrace overviewing the city was closed with no sign or reason. The rooms are very small if you get a queen bed, no much space to put your staff plus the bathtub are so high no kid can get in. No microwave in the room. No complementary hot beverages (coffee or tea).

5/5 Excellent

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

I really enjoyed the room, minimalistic yet warm, with plenty of light. Live the self-check in and out, super fast. Overall, a pleasant stay, hope to be back if rates will allow it.
