    Good Location - Don’t Stay in Room 25

    Returned from full day of sightseeing, FOB didn’t work (10:30 PM). No one answered call via call button. Thankfully, fellow guest let me in. WiFi is complete rubbish in common areas. Groceries were discarded prior to my departure (staff gave me complimentary salad-yum!). No electrical outlets/USB by beds. And, yes beds are RIGHT next to each other-bit weird. Pros? Place is clean, good location, nice vibe and staff are helpful. Free metro pass. Skip overpriced breakfast! (Hopefully, you won’t get room 25. Long stay resident with ticking clock-you’ll feel like you’re in Peter Pan’s Neverland.)

    Stayed 2 nights in Aug. 2019

    5/5 Excellent

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

    Modern, clean, staff were helpful and kind, and moderately inexpensive. The only negative was the walls were thin which we had loud neighbors the first night but it was a great place to stay.
