It is very cozy and you have everything you need.
The wifi is not so good and we had problems connecting it with our laptops.
Staffs are so nice to me. Even I arrived there 9am which is opening time of reception, she kept my luggage in the luggage room and I could spend time at lounge space until checking time. It was so thankful because I was very tired after long flight. And the room was a bit small but still good tidy. Kitchen and bathrooms as well.
The bed’s like a cloud.
10/10 I stayed in a two bed bedroom great value for money and the facilities were great I would recommend everyone to stay here
Price is good
Bathroom was stinky, mattress too hard and building is way too old.
