4/5 Good

    Pros: Excellent location, nice rooms, good room service, helpful front desk staff, nice chill common area. Cons: Takes payment in cash only, no hot water (you don't really need it).

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
      • Disliked: Room comfort

      Location is excellent. Bed is comfortable, but the bathroom is a problem. The shower, sink and toilet are basically in the same spot, so water gets all over the room even if you are extremely carful. I often take cool showers in warm weather back home so I thought no hot water wouldn’t be a problem, but I’ve actually had pretty COLD water in the shower, which has been difficult. Love the place, otherwise, but dislike having NO WINDIW TO THE OUTSIDE. I got a super sale of usd $20 which makes it a great bargain, even though construction is ongoing and workers were pounding on my walls from 8am
