As far as the hotel experience goes it's good. I would skip the breakfast option. It's cold boxed and pretty lame. The big draw back is the fact there is a bar/restaurant that rents the front of the hotel. The bad part is that hotel guest are not allowed to sit there unless you are ordering from the separate bar. It's frustrating as a guest to not be able to sit in front of the hotel you are staying at. I was told to leave from the bar. The bar had zero customers by the way. Really stinks to be told to leave from the property that you are a PAYING guest at. The owner of the hotel should reconsider renting to a business that doesn't treat their guests with respect and kindness. I will not be back and I encourage everyone to consider a hotel where the guests is welcome on the property. There are hundreds of hotels in this area of town, skip this one for sure.

The rooms are compact but big enough for a few nights. The beds are comfy. Really clean. Good WiFi. Free water. Use of washer and dryer is a good price. Toiletries provided. There's a kitchen you can use. Only annoying thing is you need to use your room key to use the lifts, so if there's two of you sharing it makes it awkward to get in and out the building if you're doing your own thing.
