Overall the rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. We also enjoyed the large bath and the view from the room. The breakfast as well was enjoyable, though not noteworthy, while the common areas were generally well taken care of.
The most unfortunately thing was the shower. In trying to make the rest of the room larger, this definitely suffered. There is not a divider between the bathroom and the main room and the shower itself is not large and also did not have a back. As a result, even a shower with relatively low water pressure made quite a mess and meant that afterwards when standing at and using the sink or walking around in the general vicinity, you were in a pool of water. Though maybe not terrible, it was disappointing. Also, when arriving each night at 7, there was no one there outside of the security, which seemed a bit strange.
Overall worthwhile, but has some areas in which it could improve.
