I was staying on business. Initially shown a suite with separate bedroom and living room, a bath/shower room, but on the first floor, gloomy and with little light. I downgraded to a studio arrangement on the third floor, much brighter and lighter, although smaller and with no bath, simply a shower.
If you stay more than a few days, the room is not serviced, the bed not made - all that is done is the waste baskets are emptied. Once a week the bed linen is changed. Odd, that.
In the bathroom, a large modern mirror over the basin with embedded vanity lights. The overhead lighting is such that one's face is in shadow - but the mirror lights don't work! On mentioning this at reception, I was told, "No, none of them do!" So shaving, and I'm sure makeup, is very difficult.
The TV screen in my bedroom was tiny, about the size of a laptop. No cable, just local channels.
The breakfast, such as it is, is very poor, with very little choice, and costs extra. There is, however, a welcome tea/coffee machine which makes good coffee and is freely available all day.
There is a laundry room available to guests at no charge. Machines are good.
