Positive Reviews

Near restaurants and attractions

Although this hotel is a few blocks further from downtown than the name suggests, guests have found the location of the property is convenient nonetheless. There is a decent choice of restaurants within a 15-minute walk, as well as shops and cultural attractions within reasonable driving distance.

Clean and spacious rooms

Rooms here aren’t particularly luxurious but previous guests have tended to describe the accommodation as clean and comfortable regardless. Guests have also noted that the rooms are surprisingly spacious considering the city center setting of the hotel.

Convenient extras

Feedback concerning breakfast is a little mixed but most guests have agreed that this freebie is convenient and saves a bit of cash during your stay. Also, guests have found the free shuttle service is a handy extra, with many taking advantage of the service to avoid driving for a while.

Negative Reviews

Parking related concerns

A number of guests have mentioned that they found themselves circling the hotel in order to access the underground parking lot. Others found that parking spaces were limited. Also, guests haven’t been overly keen on paying extra for parking.

Noisy air-con/heating

Although noise doesn’t appear to be a significant concern at this hotel, guests have mentioned that the in-room air-conditioning and heating units are fairly noisy. This may present some challenges for light sleepers.

Immediate neighborhood may disappoint

Guests have appreciated the proximity of shopping, dining, and attractions but do note that the area immediately surrounding the hotel seems a little sketchy. This is especially the case at night when the area is found to be poorly lit.
