    Lovely balcony n view, clean modern bathroom, v comfortable bed, walking distance to everything n next to a gas station. No elevator so we had to carry our bags to 2nd floor. When u enter the building from the side parking area, it had stairs plus the area looked rather scruffy, so was v surprised the actual room was so nice.
