Picked this place based on location and price. It's homey and the guests staying here are the quiet and polite type. Overheard plenty of European languages, mostly Scandinavian, UK, German and Dutch. As for the rooms they are truly tiny, but I've had worse in Amsterdam. I'm not sure about this nonsense of calling rooms with shared bathrooms "European styled", which I've read other reviewers calling it. Being European I assure you that's not our norm. My only real complaint is that the Wifi didn't work in our room. This Hotel belonged to the two hotels out of 10 that had this issue during our US trip, that's gonna put a dent in the overall experience. Anyway, room was clean and lacked funky odors. Warm water in the showers and plenty of towels meant that the shared bathroom situation wasn't a big deal. The staff were all smiling young people who were friendly and informative. Would have been nice with a common TV area or something like that, but I'm guessing the people who stay here are book types, I am too, but I still like TV when I'm holiday. Restaurant on the first floor is supposed to be the oldest running Italian restaurant in the united states. Not bad! Area is quiet and feels very safe. Saw a skateboarder though, cool beans.
