My husband and I stayed here recently for several days. It's a nice building, and centrally located which is great. However, I did have some issues with the room cleanliness, lack of refilling amenities in the room, and the state of the linens...
The toilet, without going into details, was not what I would call spotless. I do not think it had been cleaned since the last person checked out. Above the safe in the closet there was a dirty towel just sitting there. I pulled out a tissue from the metal tissue box and it was empty inside. No kleenex box or anything; just air. The free bottled water was never replenished after housekeeping came to our rooms. Once, when our bed linens were changed, there was a large tear on one side, another time there was a dark stain. My husband saw one of the housekeepers in the hallway with their trolley and asked if they could please change our sheets because the ones we received were stained. The person got very annoyed, although when we saw them again later they apologized for their behavior.
Bottom line: It is a cute little hotel, but they really need improvement in their housekeeping department.
