    Stayed for two nights, and was very pleased with location, services, and cleanliness. Bathrooms were a tad small, but still very clean and usable. Internet was fast enough to even do light online gaming, even using the free service. Would definitely stay here again!More

    There is a main entrance from the Lobby and for quick access there are some doors at the perimeter, but they only open with an active room key.
