6/10 Good

Rooms were spacious and had a proper air conditioner only a few blocks from city. It appears some rooms are rented out long term which have attracted noisy renters, I stayed 2 nights and the last residents were noisy till early morning, so my other booking in a week later was cancelled by me.

Not what we expected
Disappointed with rooms. We moved rooms after the first night due to noise and the second room was slightly better. Quite run down though - carpet worn through in places, only two stove elements worked, oven tray so dirty we gave up trying to clean it. Bathroom however was very clean and beds were quite comfy with clean crispy sheets. Guest Laundry was revolting; washing machine had some sort of scudge in it that could be wiped off with your fingers, there was another machine that was full of clothes, washing powder, pipes and appeared to be disconnected?! This was right in front of the dryer that presumably worked but you'd have to move the washing machine to get to it. We used a laundromat. They were very accommodating however when we asked to change rooms due to road noise and allowed us to leave our luggage in the room until we left for the airport at 2pm on the day of checkout as it was not booked. So 50/50 really for a short stay.
