Not for a family
I feel that the inside of the building could be maintained better. Wall paper are pealing and it looks old and not maintained. I expected more. It is not a place where I would recommend a family to stay, it caters more for young single people and backpackers. Parking on site is expensive.

t was when the coronavirus pandemic was ramping up so I don't think this stay was necessarily representative. The building is in terrible condition but I have stayed here before and I would again.
