3/5

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

Absolutely no closet space- only 2 shirts at most could fit- this is unacceptable! Tiny alley view, no sky visible. Stained towels upon arrival. Had to request a refrigerator, but it was cheerfully delivered. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was nicely sized. Chairs were too low set to work comfortably at the desk. There was no night light so one had to grope one’s way to the bathroom at night or wake up everyone by turning on the light. There was a significant line at checkout. All in all, there were far too many negatives - despite the good location- to offset the relatively high price of the room. I would stay elsewhere next time.

I liked everything except the air conditioning in the room. Impossible to make it cooler, always too hot
