Liked: Staff was very kind, and nice and I have not much things to complain about this place. Nice and cozy, nothing special tho. Value of money ! Location was ok, walking distance to city and transportation. I would come back.

Disliked: Kitchen wasn't clean, there was chrochoaches on shelfs and pretty dirty all other ways too. Only one shower for one floor, not that much space for luggages in rooms.
