    Suggestions: - make stairs more available or obvious for usage - Make fire exit available for everyday (removing alarm: putting alarm on actual fire detection) - replace carpet floor with tiles, linoleum or laminate

    Everything was nice except for the WiFi connection which was poor and kept dropping. The staff was friendly, facilities were fine. The location is convenient for most purposes. It was a bit noisy outside though.
