Liked: Nice location and quite helpful staff.

Disliked: Had to change rooms during my 2 night stay even though I had booked more than a week in advance and was only notified upon arrival that I had to check out the next day at 11am sharp then check back in 5 hours later at 4pm. That was annoying. But they staff were understanding and gave free breakfast, would have rather just got a continuous room/bed though!

Liked: Mostly the cleanliness and good order of things. Staff was accomadating and nice, rooms and bathrooms were clean and secure. The property itself is well kept outside and in, with plenty of areas to relax in a quiet environment. The facility has great event options too! Free jazz, group activities... Full service cafe, kitchen... It was a great stay!

Disliked: Maybe more than one towel would have been nice, other than that all was great!

Liked: There's space ib front of the shower curtain where you can put your clothes. They have enough power outlets and lockers right next to the beds.

Disliked: It's not possible to walk to the sights downtown because it's too far, you always have to pay for the subway.
