    It's a good option around the area, the beds are comfy, the bathroom is well equipped, but the kitchen could be a bit more modern. Excellent Wi-Fi connection and nice receptionist. Laundry service works great. Room price for 4 people: 190$

    Like many other guests we took our own. With supermarkets close by we were never short of any fresh produce. Alternatively there are many facilities within a stones throw that serve breakfast if you require cooked.
