This hotel is really a university residence during the holidays. That said, it was small, tidy, and the security was good. The room had a hair dryer, a kettle and a tv. It was missing a hand towel and washcloths, which we obviously asked for. BUT, there was an odour in the room which was between the smell of a room deodorizer or bad perfume that we just could not locate. Turning on the air conditioner helped. Also, after our first night, housekeeping did not come in to tidy, to make the bed, or give us fresh linens... Which I had always assumed was the standard. Lastly, wifi is only available for smartphones in the lobby, using a code provided by the desk.
All-in-all, great value for your buck. Conveniently located in the downtown core, near the train station and the mall, and a short walk to the beach.
