The kitchenette was great,but the bed was too close to the front windows to get out easily. First two nights cleaning - great. Last night - poor. Location for us - great. Value for money - great.

Filthy room. Long black hairs all over sheets and blankets. Bathroom terrible. Went and bought cleaning products to clean it myself. Cleaning cloths were black from dirt. Kitchenette no better. Food and grime over surfaces and crockery/cutlery. Felt very uncomfortable. Smoke entering room from people smoking outside door.
