The room was great, very spacious. Kitchen is very well set up and free breakfast was a great perk. Only thing that could be improved is to put a hand dryer/paper towel in the ensuite bathroom.

Well located, easy to find and provided the basic needs - a bed, a toilet, washing facilities and a kitchen. Not much above and beyond that but for the price it did the basic stuff well. Even a decent spread for breakfast included.
