We recently booked a small room for two nights. While there were things we really liked about our stay - the decor, the friendly staff, the location - the feeling that we walked away with was negative. We were on the second floor, directly above the bar. We noticed early in our stay that the walls to our room seemed a little thin; we were able to hear people's conversations in the rooms around us at times, but it wasn't to a point that we would complain. Unfortunately for us, we did not read the review on this site before staying at the hotel. We did not know how bad it would be to stay in a room above the bar! Sometime right after we fell asleep, they began playing music in the courtyard below. The walls were vibrating, and we could understand the lyrics from inside our room with the doors closed!! We could not go back to bed until after two. At that time, they turned the speakers in the courtyard off, but still had loud music playing inside. In addition to the fact that we could not sleep, the air conditioner seemed to have some sort of sensor, which prevented it from running unless we were able to periodically wave our hands in front of it. While we were sleeping, it stopped running, and we were quite hot when we woke up. It would have been nice to know about the noise level ahead of time. I'm not sure whether the rooms that are higher up avoid the worst of the noise, but I agree with the previous review that if you stay here you should not stay in a room in the 200 level.
