10/10 Exceptional

Was amazed by this accommodation. It seemed brand new. It was spotless. One of the quietest places I’ve ever stayed. I was on the 10th floor and the view from the window was amazing. I presume students can live there so there was loads of storage for clothes. Lots of nice desk space. I was really impressed. I didn’t check out the breakfast, but I found a very nice cafe downstairs for dinner called Mao. The only negative I can find is that my shower ran hot and cold, both days.

I loved the room that I stayed in, it was very clean and comfortable. It was very nice that it included a kitchenette with a fridge and utensils that I could use. The bed was comfortable and the view was beautiful. The staff at the front desk were very helpful as well.

New building and equipment. Kind staff. The kitchen or kitchenette is basic but functional with utensils and fridge. Breakfast is not exceptional but matches the price
