on criticism would be the thin walls and hearing those in rooms next to me and no ceiling lights in the main room, took me a while to work out had to use the lamps. Otherwise was great, got a park when arrived late, easy check in and out. Exactly what i expected and hoped for.

Nothing to like. Hotel needs a total refurbishment. Walls dirty in all areas. Entrance and reception area tells the whole story. So very very noisy ambulance station very close.
