if you're just looking for somewhere to sleep and shower, and maybe prepare a meal, this is the place. It's not 4 star accomodation or 3 star.... it's cheap accomodation in the heart of the City. I love it.

there was a mix-up in communication to cleaning staff and my room was not ready for occupancy when I arrived, even though it was well after check-in time.
