Light sleepers were not fond of hearing all sorts of noise while trying to get some rest.

Others have also noted that the hallways are equally noisy, and you could hear people coming and going from the adjacent rooms.
Travellers accustomed to spacious accommodations did find the rooms at this hotel to be a tad too small for their liking.
