The outside is very poor, I was dreading going inside when we finally opened the front door. The actual room was very nice. The towels were very worn and old. We also had a bat in the room. Don’t think I’ll stay again.

Great property, lovely, clean. Very difficult to find, up stairs off street, not well-marked. Confirmation e-mail with codes not sent until 11 am, when we were without internet, contact did not answer phone.

pictures of the property do not reflect the it's location in relationship to the road. Made it difficult to see the entry from the road... Need a sign out at roadside to clearly locate property

Room 5 is top floor, up several flights. Room was okay, however this was the attic room and it was quite hot. There were also no operating windows, only skylights that did not open. I think this is a definite violation in terms of fire safety. Checkin was contactless. Location is not immediately obvious. There were no electrical outlets in bathroom and no mirrors elsewhere so hair styling, shaving had to be done sans mirror
