The room was spacious and comfortable. The bed and pillows were very comfortable.The checking-in and out process was convenient and smooth. It was a bit of a struggle carrying suitcases (even small ones) up three flights of stairs but we were forewarned that there is no elevator.

overall the experience was good. the staff were all very friendly and helpful whenever we interacted with them. Our room was a good size and spacious and very clean with sufficient facilities, and the bed was very comfortable. The only negative we had was the noise from the bar below throughout the day and night. All in all though good value for money.
