Clean, easy to find, room had everything I needed. Only think that could have been better was perhaps the view the window looked out on a laneway.

Comfortable room, with all the necessary amenities and a nice view of the city. Unfortunately, we had an issue with noise in our main bedroom. We suspect someone left on the bathroom fan all night in the apartment next to ours and this made it very difficult to sleep. However, the next day the staff was very accommodating and offered to move us. As it happened, we didn't get the same noise the next night. If I had realised there was 24/7 phone service I would have called reception the night before to try to sort out the issue. Overall, a pleasant stay.
