Having stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, I am surprised that it has 4 stars. The first good thing about the hotel is its location (which is really great). Second, the staff is friendly and helpful. Third, tiny kitchens in the rooms are a nice idea. But for the rest... We didn't like the breakfast - it's really overpriced, and you don't have much choice of food. Within 5 nights of our stay, we were awakened twice by the (false) fire alarm (FYI, it gives you almost a heart attack in the middle of the night 🤦🏻‍♀️). The rooms could have been cleaner as well - an in-between cleaning of our room was really lousy.

Location was perfect for us. Rooms aren't particularly homely although definitely functional, clean and tidy with fridge , microwave and toaster. Check in and check out stuff were friendly as were the housekeeping staff. Hotel was reasonably busy but rooms still quiet.Gym is functional. Didn't try food.
