This was a great location from which to see the city - many of the main attractions are within 30/40 mins walking distance - ideal since this is always the best way to explore a city.
We had 2 rooms both of which were clean and comfortable. A nice touch was that there was bread, milk, coffee, bottled water, orange juice and fruit in the refrigerator waiting for us which when we arrived which was a welcome surprise as it was late in the night when we arrived. In addition he bathroom was stocked with soaps, toothbrushes and shaving foam.
There are plenty of restaurants, deli's, take-away's and convenience stores within a couple of blocks.
Zebo and all of the staff at 310 were welcoming and helpful and it is very handy that the office is in the same building. Zebo was kind enough to allow us to stay past checkout time during the volcanic ash crisis while we made alternative plans after our flight home was cancelled - i would like to thank her for that and the use of her office computer.
The only improvement i would suggest is that they should think about upgrading the internet in the room to a wireless system. We all had iphones/ipods and smart phones and unfortunately the only internet available was via a ethernet cable - not much use unless you take a laptop with you which i would imagine not too many people do.
I guess the best test is if you would consider returning on a future trip and we would would be happy to do so.
