It was great as breakfast was included. There was a guest laundry, I didn't have to wait and it was cheaper than going outside the hotel. Just a sign on how to use the washing machine. I needed to ask a staff member. We will be back.

As we traveled by train, the location was excellent. The staff were very helpful and friendly, which made our stay pleasant. The light rail is also close and very frequent. You don’t need a car to get around or go to the beach. I recommend this hotel stay !
