Definetely overpriced. Rooms are small and spartan, but the all-white furniture is new. The location is very good, if noisy. The breakfast is standard, but the coffee was lukewarm and weak. At the reception we were told that there was a small safe in the room at the cost of around six dollars a day. When I declined, they put a form in front of me, telling me to sign it. As I perused the form, it stated that since I declined the safe, I was releasing he hotel from any responsibility for the theft of any possession I had. As I found this too extreme and a bit unlawful, I declined to sign it, and was told then to take the safe or sign the form, or leave the hotel.
Since accomodations were difficult at the time , I had to backtrack, and pay for the so called "safe", which was a small metallic box fastened to the floor inside the closet, and which required a back breaking motion to put things into it.
But, on the plus side, if you do not question them, the staff keeps grinning all the time.
