The hotel started out promising, but went downhill over our 5 day stay. There are very narrow winding stairs to get up to the rooms. The room itself seemed good but the showers were really awkward and splashed water into the bathroom.
I think security wise at night it could also feel safer. After midnight there is no one in the front desk and the access into the hotel is just swiping your room key.
Service overall was quite poor. The people working at the front desk were not very friendly at all. They did not change our sheets during our stay, which is okay for being sustainable, however when we asked for it to be changed after the third night they seemed very begrudging. There was also some days where we came back and there was no toilet paper in the bathroom or soap.
Also, note that the hotel runs out of hot water if you shower too late or have roommates/other people staying with you.
Even though this is a convenient area, I would look elsewhere for better value next time. Overall it was a very mediocre stay and I think there is better around the area.
