Room was fine for what it was but pillow was flimsy and navigating the layout was often confusing. Service was fine.

The quality was OK for the price & location. Just unfortunate that it was such a hot night with only fan. At least the windows open and the shower was available when I needed it.

Good for the price and close to facilties

Pros: The price
Cons: There was a lot of party noise from the street at different times during the late and early hours. I doubt anything could be done about this.
Location: All the things we were interested in such as dining and hotels etc were all close by. You could also catch the tram a short walk away.
Staff were very good helpful and friendly. Beds and facilities were all good. To top it off we were also given vouchers for drinks and food outlets in the area. It was central to where we wanted to go and close to Circular keys. We were able to walk to every where we needed to go. Thank you David T Francis
