Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The hotel was lovely and clean with a beautiful bathroom. I would avoid it in summer though as it had no aircon and the windows barely open. Expedia sent a email saying to download an app called shackle to check in so you dont need to use the check in desk however the room needs a card to use the electricity/ lights. Theres also no signs saying how to find your room.

Whilst the rooms were a reasonable size and clean, it was summer when we stayed, and very hot. There is no air conditioning in the rooms and the traffic noise level is high with the window open. Also, there was no fridge provided in the room.
