    Room Tips
    "We enjoy facing India Street where all the activity is located. So by default, it is loud."

    "Try and get a room with a balcony. Top floor can have weird A/C or pipe noise. Personally prefer third floor."

    "Wear earplugs to bed if you stay on the India street side, just in case they clean the streets early morning."
