Nice and comfy
Clean and comfortable, but kitchen and lounge are bit far each other. Large kitchen is located isolated area. otherwise I really enjoy staying there. Room was clean and warm enough. Location was perfect for me as I could walk to get the place which I worked.

CHAN JOO, nz1 night business trip
Poor 2.0
Hotel was overbooked, we were almost left outside
I arrived at 9.00 pm. My key was supposed to be in a box and indeed it was there. I opened the room's door and to my surprise there was a young couple in the bed (luckily they were busy each one with their social media :-). They showed me the key the had and it was of the same room! I had to call the receptionist who was sleeping. He came after 10 minutes and it took him another 20 min. to give me another room. The room was good but the overall experience stressful as it was night, we were tired and no one was there to help initially.
