    A great spot here and one I will return to. With a good selection of cafes and restaurants nearby the location was great for me. Speed up the internet a bit and put some decent TV's in the room and I will be much happier!

    Great location, walking distance to anything you need, friendly and attentive staff. Room was clean, hotel was clean and quiet. Enjoy a cool morning having coffee on the front stoop watching people or hang in the cozy lobby while you wait for your transportation.

    Hi - its on a small urban urban street and there is NO street parking. There is parking buildings in the area and from memory they have the info on the hotel website. Its a cute hotel and great value for money.
