    The "rooms" and pods were nice. Good location, facilities and service. The one downside was a somewhat poorly organized kitchen. Too few utensils and working stoves. Come back? Yes, probably. Due to a mishap we were forced to change rooms, the staff handled that perfectly.More

    You have to have low expectations to want to stay here. Curtains hanging off, room smelled of mould, the staff's response was to offer room freshener spray ! It resembled a very poor quality, damp youth hostel, I'd avoid it at all costs
