There are two "bouncers" posted at the ground floor at all times to keep out the folks who do not belong. At least there is security... The room was on the... More

I really enjoy this hotel for the price I paid: very good location (near many sightseeing, restaurants), good breakfast, good room, friendly staff. The only inconvenience was wifi not working well on the rooms.
