The hotel is well situated and within walking distance of some restaurants and a drugstore, but, the welcome i received was very 'cold' and unwelcoming - it was if they were doing me a favour by actually checking me in - and it was too much trouble. Room was OK - but very 'orange', not my favourite colour by any stretch of the imagination! no curtains to pull across other than the hessian ones so light shone though - there were some blinds but i did not work out how to pull them down. All in all, a very average exoperinece and i will not rush to return. check out was as off-hand as the check in. Customer Service training required!
