I'm not particularly picky and at first I was charmed by this place. But then I actually stayed there. First, it was built in 1962 and shows only a bit of cosmetic updating since. Extremely noisy. You can hear your neighbors late night conversations through paper thin walls. The single pane glass and cheap doors do nothing to keep out the noise from the courtyard or the loud clunking as people walk around the elevated walkway outside to get to their rooms - which also made the place shake & vibrate. The doors squeak like old barn doors & the faucets leaked.
We had a "loft" unit which was, quite literally impossible to use because the ladder getting up to it was not built properly.
Bottom line: Not worth the fortune they charge.
