Business traveller, Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Pros; Great location, reasonable price, and clean room. Cons: No chromecast or Netflix, and the standard double-bed room we stayed has only one chair with a long desk, so I wasn’t sure how to drink or eat anything comfortably with my partner (someone had to stand or sit on the bed).
